Filtered Thoughts:
     I still haven't played Super Mario Galaxy 2, but when I was uploading the trailer for this post, watching it really did make me want to play the game.
     Here's the trailer:

     Super Mario Galaxy 2 was the Wii's best title released in 2010, according to the "professional" review score average on  Super Mario Galaxy 2's "professional" review score average makes it the second best Wii game, only behind the original Super Mario Galaxy.
     I think it's interesting seeing that Super Mario Galaxy 2's sales rank on is #40; compared to New Super Mario Bros. Wii's sales rank on being #16.
     I think Super Mario Galaxy 2's reported game-play hours are solid, but the average hours "Per person" are lower than I was expecting for the game at this point.
     I'm not sure how many hours Super Mario Galaxy 2 takes to complete, but the average hours "Per person" are increasing slowly, and not increasing like I would expect them to if gamers were playing the game more than once.

     If you have played and beaten Super Mario Galaxy 2, how many hours did it take you to complete just the game's main story?  If you went back to collect all the stars, how many extra hours did you play?
