If you have a Large or huge creature in a blast/burst  (ie. burst 2 could encompass a large creature) does the blast/burst do damage to the creature for each square he is in in the area?  Sorry if the wording is a little off.
PH1 pg. 271, under Area Attack and Close Attack (emphasis mine):

"A Large or larger creature hit by an area attack is affected only once by the attack, even if multiple squares of the creature’s space are in the area of effect."

"A Large or larger creature hit by a close attack is affected only once by the attack, even if multiple squares of the creature’s space are in the area of effect." 

Returned from hiatus; getting up to speed on 5e rules lawyering.

No you do not get seperate attacks rolls for each space a creature occupies. Even the blast only shares only one square with a large creature it still takes the full effect.
