Default more Wii Suggestions

I know someone was asking about shooters but I'm looking for some general suggestions here. My Younger brother in law gave me his old wii. It was so old the controllers didn't have that Motion Plus thing on it so I had to order a couple of those because SWMBO wanted to play Wii Sports Resort.
So far we've got:
Two controllers with with nunchucks and the motion Plus thingy
Wii Sports
Wii Sports Resort
Lego Star Wars (the complete series)

SWMBO used to really enjoy Super Smash Brothers on the N64 so we were thinking of getting the Wii version of that.

We both really liked messing around on the Dance Dance Revolution in the arcades so we want that but its almost $100 to get the game, and two pads.


Any suggestions of more Wii games that are good for my wife, who is a super casual VERY VERY VERY VERY competitive gamer and me, a Hardcore computer gamer since 1995 or so.

I played Super Mario Galaxy 1 when my old roommate got a wii back when you couldn't hardly find a wii anywhere and they were all backordered and such... anyways, I found the game maddening with the camera angles. Is two pretty much like 1 with more things to do? Like the gameplay is pretty much the same?


Also, I am hoping SWMBO will go for Force Unleashed 2, over 1/2 of the computer games I've owned in my life have been Star Wars related. Might have to wait until march for the birthday though.

Mario Galaxy 2 has the same crazy camera angles as 1 but they are more refined if that makes sense. I personally thought the game play was amazing.

I recently cancel my gamefly subscription because it took forever for the games to get to me, but i would recommend if you are closer to their depot.

I won a WII at an electronics show a couple of years ago, and there was only one thing to buy for it: Guitar Hero.

Mario Kart
That's pretty much all we play on ours. But if I didn't have it for Xbox, I'd get Rockband!

In the Force Unleashed, do you get to use your wii controller as a lightsaber?

If so, then sign me up! I hadn't played the wii for about a year until the other night. I soon realized why I hadn't played in that long.

My games suck. Zelda graphics are simply awful. Boom Blox was the only game that would hold my attention.

Plus, we lost our copy of wii sports. I loved the bowling and the golf on that.

Supposedly (according to FIL) the BIL is supposed to also be giving us his copy of Guitar Hero.
Super Mario Brothers Wii, i just now looked at the game trailer. That is pretty cool, i had breezed right over it when i was looking at games. I think SWMBO might like that too. Looks not so complicated.

Not really. It is kinda like a light saber but not what you think it should be. I also have a PS3 with the Move controller which we be perfect for a lightsaber, but I don't hear any talk yet from Lucasarts.

Any of the Lego games ( Batman, Indiana Jones ) are great. I also have the crossbow which comes with a cool Zelda game.
