As for the equipment, SS's equipment was very balanced and diverse, with pants increasing HP, DEF, and giving effects while the badges increased BP, POW, and also gave effects. PiT and BIS's equipment was just simply upgrading to stronger equipment than being given a wide variety of equipment without more than a few of them being the same, and ditto that only the pants increased stats after SS. Bring the depth and diversity of the equipment from SS back, please.
I didn't see any problems with the equipment system in BIS. I mean, it had things like Treasure Specs, Challenge Medal, and Vengeance Cape that had some unique effects. Just look at the list for Bros Gear: http://www.ign.com/wikis/mario-luigi-bowsers-inside-story/Bro_Gear
The ability to equip 3 types of gear at once was also a nice addition.
More villains need to be protagonists. BiS proves it can work. Ridley, Ganondorf, Fawful, Bowser, and Dimentio all for their own games!
If they go back to SSS style then fine, but please God don't bring back changing character order. That was an okay idea for its time, but it was also obnoxious to have to high jump everywhere and swap around constantly.
I personally am against the Shroobs returning to some of the ideas that suggested this. They aren't bad characters by any means, but they don't fit an M&L game with it's comical atmosphere and PiT suffered from that.
I'd like to see Wario and Waluigi join...too bad it won't ever happen.

But that was one of the best aspects of Superstar Saga. It allowed for intricate puzzles and for the Bros to be separate at many times.

Then don't have the High Jump, and have something used less frequently in place of it; problem solved.

I didn't have a problem with it, and you're the only person I've ever heard complain about this.
It was annoying. If they can make it less intrusive and less of a chore, (because let's be honest, changing the order and then shoulder bumping to high jump/spin jump/whatever isn't a puzzle since the applications for it were fairly obvious) then so be it. Otherwise, it should stay out.
