Would be great to be able to select and move/copy all starred files. Would make the star functionality useful, rather than just a bookmark.
Yes, I have the same need. I was looking for old cost estimate data scattered throughout my old files (I'm an engineer), and I starred the ones I need, in the hopes I could select and download them all in a single download. It would seem that "starring" a file doesn't have much more utility than only a bookmark, although I know that's its original intent. I can't imagine allowing selection and downloading of the starred files (just link any other directory) would be difficult functionality to add.
My wife and I also just "starred" a few hundred photos and videos to gather them for a wedding. I am now realizing this is crappy design and the implied functionality is terrible. In the other help thread where the super user said it is only intended as a bookmark and is working as designed can take their answer and stick it. I too have been a happy dropbox user until this moment. Every other utility out there with a "star" functionality allows you to at least select or filter once you do that. I am VERY disappointed at this moment. I will now do a review of all other services which will allow me to synchronize my files with my cell phones.
This idea is going to need a bit more support.

The starred function is totally useless, I starred my videos to sort them out and do something with them.
Could you please do something as a <Select all starred> function + move/copy/download?
