Do you miss the days where Mario was sometimes prominently an announcer for things? Well, I can think of only three games where Mario is an announcer: Mario Kart 64, Mario Tennis 64, and that one Pac-Man game. But in all three, it's always very fun to listen to, and I think it adds quite a bit of charm, a wacky Mario flavor to the game. "Charm" is often poorly defined, but I can say it just brightens the mood a lot. Certainly, it's something, and the announcers in the later Mario Tennis games just lacked that weirdness and bias Mario showed (like when he fondly says "Luigi" in Mario Tennis).
