** What are you talking about? Have you seen the game's ending? Bowser's galaxy generator was trying to eat up Rosalina's observatory, and she was stuck inside it the whole time, and when she shows up during the ending, she says that she's been searching for Luma after she lost him...She would've shown up on Starship Mario, if only for that, if she could have. In addition, I don't think the protector of the cosmos would've let a threat as big as Bowser's be handled without her help, just because "it wasn't big ''enough''.

** Nowhere is it stated that Rosalina is in danger, Bowser or otherwise. Besides, [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu how likely]] would that even ''be?'' It seems that Rosalina is staying out of it because she knows you're in good hands (Lubba) and Bowser's threat isn't as destructive as last time. She probably has faith in Mario and Luigi to save the galaxies without needing much cosmic interference.

* What's the true nature of the cosmic spirit that appears to aid you in certain galaxies? She looks like Rosalina, sounds like Rosalina, and has the same personality and manner of speech as Rosalina, but if it ''is'' Rosalina...how is she able to appear there in the first place? She spends the game being held hostage by Bowser - otherwise, she would've lended Mario and Lubba her aid a lot sooner - yet the cosmic spirit never seems to suggest that she's in any danger or mortal peril. She speaks about as calmly as ever, and neither Mario nor Luma ever seem to make note of the similarities.

** Wasn't the universe destroyed and recreated at the end of the first game? I'm thinking it was created a little younger than the original was destroyed.

* So after you collect 242 Power Stars, Rosalina comes and stays on board Starship Mario, which is pretty cool. But...where is she keeping the observatory during this time, and what's to stop Bowser from going and stealing ''her'' Power Stars again?
* Isn't it a little weird that they show Luma alongside Mario whenever he confronts Bowser, unlike how they did in the first game...even though you never use the powers he grants you in any of the subsequent battles? I know it's probably meant to symbolize YouAreNotAlone, but every battle against Bowser involves Ground-Pounding meteors into him - Mario could've won the battle easily even if he hadn't had the power to spin thanks to Luma.

** ''"But the cycle never repeats itself in quite the same way...So...You'll see."'' That's why things were reset to how they were during the Star Festival, except with all the characters he'd met during the game attending, as well. (There's also a bit of a theory I've come up with that the second ''Galaxy'' game was sort of a midquel between the ending of the first one and the 121st star-ending from the 1st one, in which the universe was recreated by the Lumas' sacrifice, Luma was reborn while Mario was on his way to the new Star Festival, Bowser stole Lubba's Power Stars, Mario stopped him again, Luma was reunited with Rosalina, and everyone attended the festival as was shown during the 121st-star-ending from the first game.

** Rosalina and Lubba have been out of touch for a while, and it's clear that Lubba's starship isn't in good shape when you meet him.

* How is it that a bronze Star is apparently equal to a regular Power Star in terms of power, yet you need to collect five silver Stars in order for them to form together and equal a Power Star. Shouldn't silver be better than bronze?

* How is it that do giant Lumas work? They seem to appear only in the Supermassive Galaxy...How would Rosalina ever be able to take care of them? When they transform, do other giant galaxies form as a bronze result? How many Star is apparently equal Bits would it take to a regular Power Star in terms sustain one of power, yet you need to collect five silver Stars in order for them to form together and equal a Power Star.
