Now I haven't played many Mario spin-offs so maybe they have more "dialogue" from the bros than this (besides Paper Mario), but it seems like they gave as much dialogue to Mario and Luigi in this as possible imo. Not necessarily written out words in text boxes, but Mario's "Oh hey bro" and "Ohhh, doggy!" were cute and you could tell what Luigi was saying when he implores E. Gadd to stay in the hotel. "B-b-b-b-b-b-but - M-m-m-m-m-Mario!" is a good line (though I do wish he said something like "P-p-p-p-p-rincess?" when he got out of bed, seems like they're putting all the focus on Mario being kidnapped again. Having one of the D-pad buttons call out "Princess?" would be nice).Which I think makes the lack of dialogue from Mario and Luigi all the more jarring. I know it's been...Mario series tradition to sometimes not give them dialogue, sometimes do, and it's consistent from Luigi's Mansion games and in general to have characters speak their thoughts but christ sometimes I wish they drop it because it ultimately acts pointless when the characters they're talking to just speak out their thoughts anyway.
