Everything hinted towards it. Bowser upping his game with spaceships (acquired from Rosalina). Rosalinas backstory (hidden pain to jealousy that Mario is always able to regain his loved one again). The Lumas (neutral creatures manipulated by Rosa). Luigi being captured. Captain Toad always stranded. The centre of the galaxy creating a black hole leading to gaining ultimate power.

As I played the game, I started to get really excited because it seemed that this was an attempt to evolve the story and lore of the Mario games.

Sadly that wasn't what happened, and even worse, Rosalinas backstory seems to have been retconned somewhat. In Galaxy 2, when she appeared somewhat at the end of the game, i thought there might be some secret interaction with her, maybe Mario flies with her to the centre of the galaxy to discover a secret or something. But no.

I don't mind her being in Smash or Mario kart, that's to be expected. I guess Rosalina brings a touch of mystery and class or rather, dignity to the Mario universe that I miss.
Needed: New Pokemon Puzzle League, Shining Force and Left 4 Dead....
