** Less meta, the map could have selected the star that was closest [i]at the time Mario first used it[/i]. In fact, judging by the last few stars, it could have just been selecting the closest one period. Consider the locations:
*** Petalburg could easily be only kilometres from Rogueport itself.
*** The Boggly Woods also could be relatively close.
*** Glitzville can only be reached by blimp, yes, but only because of its altitude: Kammy implies that it is a day trip.
*** Twilight Town could be farther away, considering how the time of day changes significantly between there and Rogueport.
*** Keelhaul Key is several days voyage by sail, though this may not be a direct route.
*** Poshley Heights is [i]at least[/i] two full days away from Rogueport by train, possibly as many as two and a half, depending on the times of departure and arrival and how long Mario took to lower the bridge at the abandoned station: Even at 20 km/hr, that is at least 960 km.
*** Finally, the moon is, you know, [[ShapedLikeItself the moon]], and is almost certainly farther from any location on its planet than any other location on the planet.

** As mentioned in the section about the Transport Chest, Peach's only concern isn't to save herself; she also wants to make sure the other prisoners get out safely, too. Even if she could survive the fall, it wouldn't be a good option, because she'd have left behind the prisoners; on top of that, Peach was feeding Mario information about the Star Spirits' locations through Twink. Peach being in the castle to gather information was actually more helpful to her cause than actually escaping would've been.

** Maybe they just like the original designs more? Sure, the new ones look closer to the main series, but ''Paper Mario'' isn't the main series. It's a spinoff series of games with different characters and enemies and a different art style...It doesn't bug me as much as it does some others, but I don't see any reason why they would change the designs. (Also, it might just be weird for some people because the new designs are modeled after 3D forms of each enemy and are textured in much more detail, which kind of clashes with the rest of the ''Paper Mario'' universe's simple, cartoony, paper-look.

*** Actually, it (somehow) takes place during the transition from the Stage to the next cutscene. Here's proof (Pay attention to Mario's clothes.): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OtWjyK1h_HQ

** Well, that can't be the case, because if you play back through the chapters after clearing the game, Squirps is still mourning his mother in the Whoa Zone, Castle Bleck is completely intact, and both Luvbi and King Croacus have come back to life. Yet the Koopas in the Bitlands will still go as far as attacking Bowser directly. I'd say it's possible they were mind-controlled by Nastasia, but again, they still do it after the end of the game, where Nastasia pretty much becomes one of the good guys.

** She probably flies to Gloomtail's mailbox, scarfs some villagers, puts her letter in the mailbox, scarfs some more villagers, aand returns to gnaw on their bones.

** She knew it WASN'T in her/Bowser's castle. I blame the Mario/Peach/Bowser relationship to be honest. There all friends who just happen to play rough with each other. If Peach wanted to escape or for that matter fight Bowser off alone she likely could but that's not how the game is played.

* Why do some people have a problem with how the enemies look in Sticker Star? It's not like they're ugly now, they've just been updated to match their main series counterparts.
