Star Hill is a location in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. It is a large hill where all wishes are granted; it is similar to that of Star World. There is also a race of ethereal beings that lives in the Star Road; Geno was a member of this group.
When wishes are made, they appear on Star Hill in the form of Wish Stars. These stars are scattered along the dark blue ground. In Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Mario, Mallow and Geno travel here for a Star Piece. This Star Piece is the only one that can be taken without a fight; it rests on the ground at the end of Star Hill, unguarded by anyone (most likely because the player fought in Booster Tower and Marrymore). The Wish Stars can be examined to hear the wishes of the people who made them. Two of these wishes will come true over the course of the game, and if the wishes are examined after it comes true, the wish will be changed.
Since its first appearance, it has become a recurring element in subsequent role-playing games. In Paper Mario, it was located just north of Toad Town, and it had a similar purpose. It was noticeably less dangerous to travel in this time around. In the English version, it was renamed Shooting Star Summit.
There are many wishes added in Star Hill. When Mario touches certain stars, they talk and say one of various wishes. Many of them are for comedic purposes.
