What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.
In the game of laser hockey, the neon tubes do not look correct at resolutions higher than the standard Wii resolution. Remedy can be to turn off the "Scaled EFB Copy" option, but many other textures will no longer look sharp at high resolutions.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
Set the internal resolution to a high value, for example 6x. Make sure the "Scaled EFB Copy" is enabled.
Start the game and play through the levels until you reach Laser Hockey (Fifth game). Or use my save file.
Start the level.

That is a common bloom issue that affects Twilight Princess, Xenoblade Chronicles, Metroid Prime 3, and others. This is just an artifact of upscaling bloom of a set resolution - it tightens relative to the geometry and the layers become visible. There isn't a lot we an do about it at the moment, outside of AR codes or other per game techniques.
