So what's the recommended path for 2D game development for WP8?

Microsoft is scheduled to drop support for XNA next year I believe.

Then there's MonoGame which is expensive (Xamarin) unless you know you're going to make money rather than starting out.
32K of IL code restriction seems like a joke. They should change the K into an M.

You also have Construct2, Marmalade, Cocos2d-X, Unity3D (now have a 2D engine for 2D games).
Construct2 is a HTML5
Marmalade and Cocos2d-X are C++ or Javascript or Lua
Unity3D is C# and Javascript

Some of those engines support more programming languages that the ones stated above.

GameMaker can be ported to most platforms you just got to learn the GameMaker language and pay a bit more.
