Can you play as Luigi on the main story?

Topic. Now, if you can, please just tell me: 1.If I can do it just when playing the game for the first time and how.
2:If I have to beat the game to get it. (DO NOT say how)

No 1P has to play as mario in the main game. The only way to play as Luigi is if you play multiplayer, or play challenge mode.

Probably not, as in multiplayer, the gamepad doesn't control any of the four characters.

Well damn.
I'll still buy this game but i cannot stand not playing as luigi in one player.

It's half the reason nsmb wii is my least favorite nsmb game[the other half being the difficulty]

In NSMB Wii, you COULD play two players, kill off Mario, and play as another character for the entire game. Only problem is that every 100 coins, you get an extra Life for Mario and his bubble floats around. Feel free to kill him again though. Kind of a roundabout way to do it, and you still have to use P1's controller on the map screen, but if you really want to play as Luigi or a Toad in the standard game, it's a good way to do it.

I don't understand why they just don't give you the option of selecting the other characters in 1P once you defeat Bowser for the first time or something like that? Is it really that difficult to do?

This. I feel if you get 5 stars you should unlock additional playable characters for single player (i.e. Luigi, Toad, and your Mii)

Seems like an oversight by the developers. If someone has 5 stars, they obviously gain no advantage due to Luigi's height or whatever so they should let you play as him. It takes no effort to add this functionality.
