you can hold A to speed up the dialog. doesn't skip it, but it makes it last a lot less time
no mention of the St. Exupery-esque substory in the library?! FOR SHAME! this was one of the most charmingly told and at times downright heartbreaking little stories ever. and the illustrations were awesome.
i also disagree that Galaxy recycles gameplay from SM64. let's be honest here - the core, that there's a hub world and open exploration, stays the same, yes. but you yourself state that the gameplay changes utterly wildly from galaxy to galaxy - you're pretty much never doing the same thing. and the number of new elements introduced is way too big to be counted on hands and toes.
to me, this is game of the year no two ways about it. the utterly joyous soundtrack (so good to finally get a full orchestra), the graphical design of each and every planet, the totally intuitive control system, and the camera which never put a foot wrong in my entire gametime (and that is a hardcore mean feat trust me) - and all the little miyamoto touches (bill, phil, and jill board, i'll miss you) added up to a game that had me laughing, shouting and just _enjoying myself_ so much more than any game i've played in the last, oh, god, i don't know how many years.
that bioshock got a 10 and this a 9 is a crime! but hey, that's my subjective opinion (yes i played both)

For one the upgrades which are back, the mushroom that used to make Mario bigger (in this case double your energy), the ability to grab and trow certain similar object from the classic 2D Mario games, and crazy levels.

Two things come to mind in this thread: "if you have bought it and love it, WHY are you reading, caring and commenting in a review?? even more so calling it "shameful"!?!" and "if you don't agree, then fine, no two people have exactly the same opinion but it doesn't mean one or the other is any less invalid".
It does make me wonder :o
Galaxy is basically Super Mario 64 but taken to the next level.
