And lost all my save data.

Game actually froze while saving and after five minutes I opted to quit game and now I'm back at square one. :(
Something witty.

Ouch, that really sucks, but that's probably why nearly every game says to never turn off the system while the saving icon is present...

That gotta hurt, but at least you can be thankful that it wasn't a large game with a 100+ hour file.
I always exit to XMB before turning the console off, I think it'll wait until all writing/reading is done then before exiting. Also, getting an USB stick is a good way of backing up your saves, especially since this can happen by accident with power outages.

Yeah, I think I'll back up all my save data on a usbdrive now.
