A Pleasant Field With A Sinister Situation: Petal Meadows

BT writes:

When we last left our hero in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Mario had visited Rogueport, an off-corner of the Mushroom Kingdom, at the request of Princess Peach. Upon arrival, he naturally learned that she had been kidnapped and he was left to find the Crystal Stars in an attempt to both open the mystical Thousand-Year Door and find Peach along the way. The magical map left by the Princess directed Mario to a pleasant field area branching off of Rogueport called Petal Meadows. This sort of plain grassy field is one of the most common trends in practically any Mario series, always serving as a simple initial area to introduce players to the game and its mechanics without too much challenge to the player. However, Petal Meadows separates itself from the group in many ways, leading to one of the best introduction levels I’ve seen in a Mario game. (GameCube, Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door)
