    I found a few spots in SMG where you can simulate orbit using its wierd gravity ...things. I haven't played in a while and am doing this from memory so forgive me if I'm wrong about names and stuff.
    In the galaxy where the first mission is to find Luigi inside Boo's mansion, you start out on the toad brigade's spaceship. Don't go into the launch star. Instead, run across the bottom of it- avoiding the launch star- to gain speed. Just before you round the outside edge and reach the top, do a long jump. If you get the right angle and don't hit the launch star then you can get a good two revolutions before you automatically just fall.
    If you find any post em. Stuff like this adds to an unfortunately quick game's replay.

    I got all 242 stars and still found it to be over pretty quickly. But that doesn't mean it wasn't a helluva right while it lasted.

    Yea, he's counting both the Mario and Luigi play through as well as the bonus star for each of them at the end.

    Mario does have a bonus star. We're both talking about the...

    Grand Finale Galaxy

    right? Both of them can get that star.

    It's still the same star, your just redoing the mission....but....

    There is a star when you play as luigi that actually adds 121 to your star count in the game...you collect 100 purple coins in the mushroom kingdom where you first start the game as Mario and then Peach gives you a star

    The one you collect as Mario adds a star to your count aswell. But maybe we have slightly different games seeing as I have the PAL version. It always gets changed a little.
