I actually did like the Malo Mart. The Castle Town one was undeniably obnoxious, though. It was cute, but oh so messed up. The song was... interesting... at least.
But I liked it in general. I enjoyed having such a nice and cheap source of items in Castle Town, and the two Malo Marts had great items in the form of the Hawkeye and Magic Armor (Hylian Shield, too, if you count it
). I also was always a fan of Malo, and the silly dancing Goron Elders. :xd:
But to be honest, my favorite thing about the Malo Mart was how it made you use your rupees. I've always had a complaint with the series over how you get so many rupees but rarely ever have to use them. Twilight Princess gave you more rupees that most of the other games in my opinion, because there were so many of them in caves, dungeons, Lantern Caves, and from Agitha, not to mention the fact that if you couldn't carry the rupee, it was put back in the chest for later.
But the Malo Mart introduced a bunch of unique items that you had to fork over large amounts of rupees to buy. They were useful, neat optional items. They also had good prices, which makes it more enticing to buy items instead of filling up elsewhere. Finally, there was all the donations required to repair the bridge and buy property so the Malo Mart in Castle Town would open. I loved finally being able to spend my rupees as quickly as I could collect them. I want to see this in more games, as well as all the sweet optional gear that you could buy from the Malo Mart.
