First it was SMW, now it's SMB2 (the USA one). I'm starting to like Miyamoto more and more.

What the hell is wrong with Miyamoto?
SMB.2 is my favorite and mine alone!!!

So your favorite Mario is an originally non-Mario game with Mario sprites tacked on? That explains a lot.

I loved Mario 2. Nintendo should make another Mario game like it.

If you actually read that thing, you'll find out that it began with Mario in mind.

Kids these days.

He in no longer in control of the Mario franchise.

I don't think he has any control over any of his ideas anymore, except for Pikmin.

How does one manage to not have control over one's own ideas?

Just to provide some examples,

Eiji Aonuma is currently in charge of producing all the Legend of Zelda games. Miyamato created the IP, but Nintendo owns it. Aonuma may ask Miyamoto for ideas, but ultimately, it is between Aonuma and the executives of the company as to what ideas are implemented.

Takashi Tezuka is currently in charge of the Mario series. Again, it's an IP Miyamoto created, but no longer works on (hence, he is given status as an "Executive Producer", which is often reserved for the lead producer and people who created the series but not the game). Tezuka is not a fan of SMB2 (USA), so odds are there won't be another one.
