The cultural impact on choosing a type face.

Designers often use different fonts to depict mood or theme for various subjects such as sports, business, comic, horror, fun etc. . . Do we have any best practices about choosing right fonts for conveying those moods? What are the cultural aspect of choosing a type face while designing for different country and culture? Is there any research to know - how people in different part of the world react seeing different fonts or type face?
