Every stylesheet you link is another http request and for some that is important and if http requests are important to you then a single sheet is the way to go…if not then there is nothing wrong with multiples.
I disagree with your number of 3 though…I think it’s probably more like 4 or 5.
Is a single large (I don’t think bloated is appropriate) stylesheet better / faster than multiples. Why not try it both ways and see what happens.
We use a testing site for these sorts of things: http://www.webpagetest.org/
