Replacing Engine Mounts on 2005 Acura RL

My dealer has notified me that the front and side engine mounts are broken. They make it sound more like a "nice to have done" but not a "need to have done". Which is it? Should I have them replaced to prevent other problems or really is this more of a "confortable ride" issue that doesn't affect engine performance? The costs to replace are significant so weighing the importance of doing it. Thanks
