I was up right around 320 user+system apps too, a couple weeks ago. Then I started running out of internal storage (32GB) for large updates and was too lazy to use FolderMount to move the big games over to external storage so I just decided to uninstall a bunch of crap I never used and now I'm down to "only" 292.
Rather than just uninstalling, I use TitaniumBackup to apply an "Archived" label, then I use its one-click Backup->Verify->Uninstall menu option to get rid of it, but keep it locally frozen and hidden from my normal non-archived apps list. Wish TiBu or some other app had a way to make it even easier to freeze/unfreeze, so that you could, for example, have 1000 games "on your phone", but the vast majority are just archived on your external SD and only the last 50 recently used are actually installed on your phone. (anyone dev reading this feel free to steal the idea)
