Okay to answer your first question, just watch the Sonic X anime, then you'll get the joke. The Forest Temple in TP is a nice call back to OoT, but we each have our own opinion. And try playing SS using your non-dominant hand to control the Wiimote it's a pain. If there is an option to change it...
Favorite Dungeons in 3D Zelda games:
1.) Shadow Temple, so dark and eerie.
2.) Spirit Temple, I had a dream after beating that dungeon. In my dream you could switch the gravity in it (Foreshadowing much).
3.) Forest Temple, if it's creepy and has ghosts I love it.
