You can add those ones :
- Toulouse (Line 1), Capitole station ; there's a direct access to a Zara shop (formerly Virgin Megastore, formerly Marks and Spencer) : 43.604628, 1.445684
- Paris, Etoile station (RER A and Metro), there's a direct access to the Foch Bowling center : 48.873508, 2.292599
- Paris, La Défense (RER A, Metro 1) ; you can access to several shopping malls including the huge Quatre Temps shopping center.

Moreover, in Paris, shops or shopping centers are very often located inside the stations.

As far as i know, no hotel in Paris has a direct access to a station.

London, Canary Wharf (Jubilee)
London, Westminster connects to the Houses of Parliament, but of course that entrance isn't public.

Nearly all major metro stations in central Tokyo offer connections to shopping with multiple entrances. I recommend you look at the Tokyo Metro website and just click around. You'll soon see from station floor plans (like these) that show just how many entrances/exits there are. You can also see where each exit is (like here) and do map panoramas from each station exit (like here). Not only that, but each station also has a vast variety of shops present in the station itself too. These are listed at each individual station page.

tl;dr: There are way more in Tokyo than just Roppongi.

These hotels are connected with the shopping malls connected to the metro stations.

As far as museum, Palais Royal - Musée du Louvre station has a direct entrance with Carrousel du Louvre, the shopping mall of the Louvre Museum.

In Oslo, Norway: Jernbanetorget station has underground access to the "Oslo City" mall and Stovner station to "Stovner Senter". Grønland station has a number of stores, hairdressers, a travel agency etc. in the station itself.

I agree, that counts. I don't know how I could forget this one since it's close to the university... then I'm a regular user of this station. Thanks !

The northeastern entry to Peachtree Center station in Atlanta leads directly into an underground shopping gallery, which, due to the hilly topography of the site, connects to the Hyatt and other buildings via pedestrian bridges. It isn't Tokyo or Singapore, but it's better than nothing.

In Sydney the stations I can think of immediately/know of are Town Hall, Wynyard, Martin Place, North Sydney and Parramatta. There's others that have a fairly sizeable shopping complex built right on top of them (Bondi Junction, Chatswood, Hurstville, St Leonards, etc), but since the shops are above ground I guess it doesn't count.

It's Market East, ****it!!

And the underground concourse also extends to multiple office buildings, and connects to 13th Street/Juniper Station, City Hall/15th St, Walnut-Locust, and Penn Center Suburban Station.

In Hong Kong, most underground (and above ground) MTR stations offer direct access to shops, malls and hotels. A few examples:

Underground stations:
- Hong Kong - IFC mall and hotels
- Kowloon - ICC mall and hotels
- Causeway Bay - Times Square
- Tai Koo - Taikoo Shing mall and East Hotel
- Tsim Sha Tsui - several hotels and malls
- Mongkok - Langham place mall and hotel
- Kowloon Tong - Festival Walk mall
- Diamond Hill - Plaza Hollywood mall
- Po Lam - Metro City plaza

And all stations themselves have shops, with very few exceptions.

Toronto has two additional stations (Bay and Bloor/Yonge) in the Yorkville PATH (?) network at the north end of downtown that most people seem to forget exists. At least one hotel is on that network. Three other downtown stations (Queen's Park, St. Patrick and Osgoode) have connections to their immediate surrounding which don't quite meet the criteria of this thread. There is some retail, but I doubt it would qualify as a mall or shopping centre until it eventually connects with the rest of the PATH network.

Additionally, four suburban stations (Scarborough Centre, Don Mills, North York Centre and Yorkdale) have the requisite connections. Several other stations (Islington, York Mills, et al.) have connections to office towers with some retail at street level.

Vancouver doesn't have many underground stations (most are elevated) but two of them connect directly to a mall:

- Granville
- Vancouver City Centre
