I think the only solution is to write it down. For me, this is part of the appeal to this game. It brings back memories of the old NES days when not everything was explained to you in a game. I remember making maps of Metroid (awww those were the days). Here is a full list of the planets and you can simply check off the ones you completed. #1:Asmech #2:Bimourde #3:Confolens #4:Dustiny #5:Epigore #6:Foshagrune #7:Gorgonat #8:Huskari #9:Iductys #10:Jokulh #11:Keunoth #12:Lomax #13:Monathir #14:Nomenjade #15:Ozaris #16:Pouchine #17:Rosanhydre #18:Soldemas #19:Tartinours #20:Uzeek #21:Vanister #22:Quasmik #23:Wanoeth #24:Xolt #25:Yubong #26:Zatonga #27:Earth
If there's a gold star on it, you can definitely know you didn't complete it, because that means it has an Earth Map Fragment. But not all planets have Earth Map Fragments, and even then, you might have picked up the Earth Fragment on a planet and then left it.
What I did when I couldn't find the last few planets was that I started traveling to every planet and I wrote down their coordinates. After I wrote down about half of them, I started ignoring every blue dot on my radar that looked like it could match the coordinates of one of the planets I wrote down. Eventually, I realized that I never actually traveled to a certain blue dot just north of the C Area, and that was how I found Confolens.
