There some examples in Moscow:
- Vystavochnaya/Delovoy Tsentr (lines 4, 8) is located under a shopping mall, will all the exits located inside malls (e. g., you have to go through any of two malls to enter the station)

- Okhotny Ryad (line 1): one of the exits leads to Okhotny Ryad underground shopping mall
- Kievskaya (lines 3, 4, 5): one of underpass exits connected to the station was built into Europeysky shopping mall in 2007.
- Shchukinskaya (line 7) is also indirectly connected to Schuka shopping mall with one of the underpass exits
- Myakinino (line 3) station is connected to Crocus Expo exhibition center and Crocus City Hall by footbridges

- Lubyanka (line 1) station was formerly connected to Detsky Mir children shopping mall, now under reconstruction.

And all stations themselves have shops, with very few exceptions.
Yup. The above ground station Yuen Long also has an exit into a mall type structure.

Sheung Sheu also does, more or less.

These are just off the top of my head. MTR makes a lot of money from property development around their stations, so many will have malls, etc.

One excellent example I saw recently was Karlsplatz in Munich. I was recently informed it might be one of the largest underground malls in Europe.

(These are my videos and pictures from there).

Rome Termini station is also a major shopping centre as well as being the main station and the only place where lines A and B of the Roman metro cross over. It has some of the latest opening hours for shops in Rome.

A few examples of my photos in Tokyo showing the integration of shops and the metro.

Here at Shinjuku. On the left is a department store entrance underground. This is in the station complex itself.



An entrance to shopping and businesses from the Tokyo Station complex.



More shops underneath Tokyo station.





(There are many more passages like this, but I will stop with these examples).

Shin-Yokohama station has masses of shopping as well as a connection to the Yokohama Blue Line (metro) so I guess that counts too.

This photo didn't turn out so well, but it's a good example from London too - the new Stratford interchange at the Olympic Park. Massive mall next to the big interchange between Overground, Underground (Central Line), National Rail and DLR (look on the left).

New Zealand doesn't have any metros, but they do have a suburban railway system in Auckland. This connects up the train station (mainly suburban rail only) to a large set of shopping malls and the main shopping street of the city. I don't know if it counts at all, but the shopping does look nice (again, all my photos). The first photo has a direct access to the train station down some stairs.

In Singapore, Marina Bay connects the MRT and a very large shopping centre.

Ok, let´s go for german cities, though it´s not complete. I only count underground stations:

Berlin U-Bahn:
Kurfürstendamm (to former Kudamm-Eck)
Alexanderplatz (to Alexanderhaus and Berolinahaus)
Frankfurter Allee (to Ring-Center)
Kaiserin-Agusta-Straße (Karstadt)
Johannisthaler Chaussee (Gropius-Passagen)
Hermannplatz (Karstadt, to be the first underground access in Germany)
Wilmersdorfer Straße (Media-Markt)
Walther-Schreiber-Platz (SSC)
Schloßstraße (Boulevard Berlin)
Rathaus Steglitz (Das Schloss)
S-Bahn Potsdamer Platz (Potsdamer Platz Arcaden)

Hamburg:
I suppose at least Hauptbahnhof, Altona and Jungfernstieg

Hannover:
Hauptbahnhof and Kröpcke (underground passage between both stations with shops)

Essen:
Hauptbahnhof
Berliner Platz
Rathaus

Mülheim:
Hauptbahnhof

Bochum:
Rathaus (I´m not sure about that)

Duisburg:
Hauptbahnhof

Düsseldorf:
Heinrich-Heine-Allee
Hauptbahnhof

Frankfurt:
Hauptbahnhof
Hauptwache
Konstablerwache
Nordwestzentrum

München:
Karlsplatz
Hauptbahnhof
Olympia-Einkaufzentrum ?

Leipzig:
Hauptbahnhof (S-Bahn)

In Germany underground stations at central station (Hauptbahnhof) are mostly linked direct together and the central-station has a big concourse-level with shops etc.

Bondi Junction station in Sydney is underneath a huge mall.

Diamond Hill Station Exit C to Plaza Hollywood mall isn't directly connected.
Po Lam Station is an at-grade station and the access to Metro City Plaza is a footbridge.
On the other hand, North Point Station Exit B2 is directly connected to a McDonald's in the basement of Roca Centre.
Lai Chi Kok Station is connected to the malls of several condo complexes.
