Best use of the Wii remote (including MotionPlus)?

What game(s) do you think really take control of the Wii remote and use it to it's fullest potential? I think WarioWare does a pretty good job. Most of my games seem like the remote is just "tacked-on." Games like Okami, Twilight Princess, etc. Super Mario Galaxy does pretty good, but *I* haven't really seen any games that are just like, "wow!" in how well they use the remote.

I'm pretty disappointed with how Star Wars: The Force Unleashed uses it. Before the game came out, everyone acted like the controls were going to resemble actually using the weapons, but it's just about identical to Twilight Princess.

I've never played it, but I heard that same thing from my friend. He said he was so excited to get the game (he loves Star Wars), and was equally disappointed when he found out that it, y'know, sucked. I don't think *any* game so far has actually used the Wii remote like that.

Don't get me wrong, it's a good game, but the way some sites talked about the controls, you'd think the Wii remote was an actual lightsaber.

I've had my Wii for a while now, and they best game for using the wiimote is probably Wario Ware: Smooth Moves, but it's mostly a party game and you'll only like it if you think crazy japanese stuff is funny, also it's discontinued...you can still find it used, but the prices have gotten outrageous.

Yeah I was gonna mention in my post that I heard WarioWare: Smooth Moves did a pretty good job. I've just never played it, though. It was always really expensive and I never had anyone to play it with, so I skipped it.

I really like the new Tiger Woods 10 and think with the addition of motion plus, it may be the best motion game I have played.

Yeah im really glad that Tiger 10 is getting good reviews, loved playing golf on wii sports but, found the wii-mote a lil unresponsive in my short game.

So far the best ORIGINAL use of the controller that I've seen is Medal of Honor: Heroes 2. Has intuitive yet original control scheme but also allows for customization. I'm hoping that The Conduit will unseat that, but I haven't played it yet. (They allow for COMPLETE customization of the wiimote). With the advent of more WM+ games I'm sure we'll see much more effective use of this device though - I could care less about a golf game - let's see the 1-to-1 lightsaber battles!!!!

Frisbee golf on Tiger Woods and all the new goodness with Wii Sports Resort. I've got it pre-ordered and need to plan a party to get the most out of it. The previews on IGN show it should at least be a step up on the original Wii Sports. The Wii needs more games to showcase its strengths like this. And it needs more games to integrate motion seamlessly into the experience like Super Mario Galaxy did.

I say it's split between Let's Tap and Wii Sports Resort.
