I always figured that the reason for the Geno cameo and the music (including the battle themes being almost identical structurally) was just that the first games in the other RPG serieses drew more on SMRPG because that was all they had to go on, and then branched out into their own things from there, kinda like how Sonic Advance 1 is basically Sonic 4, but Sonic Advance 3 is very much a Sonic Advance 3. But this makes a lot of sense. Superstar Saga was basically a spiritual successor to Tomato Adventure, which, from what I can tell, had multiple party members but only had two in battle at a time, so it would make sense if SSS originally had more party members, and Luigi ended up crowding the others out.
Which reminds me, why the hell has there never been a fan translation of Tomato Adventure? That game looks great.
