I honestly don't care. If I remember correctly, there were only two instances of me ever running out of time, and one of it wasn't even in an original game. The first one was Carnival Night Zone in Sonic 3. This stage (both acts) is so frustratingly huge, I don't recall ever reaching Eggman before hitting the 8th minute. Obviously, when I still was young, I had no chance of doing this. The second one was in Sonic Megamix 3, Dark Castle. All of these levels are ridiculously long and I'm more than glad they redid these with the 4b release.
