    Tetris Attack for SNES. Decent single player modes, endless multiplayer fun if you're similar in skill. Very different from regular Tetris. I'm terrible at Tetris but love Tetris Attack. Also, Puzzle Fighter II Turbo for PS1 is pretty bitchin'.

    Can you be more specific? This is difficult to work with--she likes RPGs, you both like singleplayer games more, and you don't like racing or sports. Course, why would you be asking here if it were easy...

    My boyfriend and I have found a few gems that were fun to play. Usually I'm not very good at the first person shooters so that has limited our selection somewhat. Like you said, in VS games either one or the other of us has a major advantage. He kicks my ass in FPS, I fry him in Bust-a-move. What is a couple to do?!?

    We thoroughly enjoyed The Warriors for PS2 (you should rent and watch the movie it's based on too, it will only add to the fun). The screen split and controls for this one is a little hard to get used to at first, but it gets easier when you get the hang of it.

    Also Mortal Kombat's Shaolin Monks was a good Co-op game.

    We just recently tried Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia on the 360 but it is ridiculously hard on the controls.

    Good Luck and update if you find any other good ones, as we are always looking for a new game to play together as well!

    Timesplitters 3 is really fun for co-op. Also the Gauntlet games are good multiplayer fun.

    RPGs are ussually good.

    I like NWN1 (and NWN2, but everyone I know hates the second version).
    These both can either be played co-op or you can join a server.

    WOW and the like might be good (but never played it because I know I would get crazy addicted to it).

    Diablo II is a classic and runs on about any computer.

    For RTS:
    C&C and AOE (Age of Empire) games are also fun multiplier. I like AOE more then C&C, but your taste my vary.

    FPS

    These can be fun if you can get on the same team.

    The console Baldur's Gate games aren't bad choices.
    WarioWare for the Wii can also be fun.

    You also have access to the entire Gamecube library, so you can definitely pick up Four Swords, or maybe even Tales of Symphonia if you missed out on it, as it sounds like what you're looking for.

    Obligatory:

    The Star Wars Lego games are good, if easy co-op games. Pretty fun too, action platformers with all of starwars recreated with lego. There are a lot of clever little things, like how Chewbacca's melee attack tears arms out of their sockets, or how you can put a stormtrooper helmet on Luke or Han to get by imperial cameras, but the helmets won't fit on Chewie.

    You said that you don't like sports games so this may be a no-go, but my wife and I enjoy playing Madden together against the computer (we actually do our own 'Monday Night Football') thing. It's fun to switch up who is QB, and very satisfying to hand the ball off to her and watch her run through the Cowboys to score a touchdown. I imagine this would be less cool for you if you're not into football.

    I also recommend Super Monkey Ball - it isn't true co-op, but we'll ofter play Challenge Mode with two players, which means that one person attempts a stage, and whether they pass it or fall off the other person goes next. It means I play for ~30 seconds, she plays for ~30 seconds, repeat.

    Finally, since you have a Wii, I think Wii sports is pretty logical. We love the bowling more than the other sports, ymmv.

    I'd recommend Diablo 2, pretty cheap to nab a couple copies on ebay or something. It's a really fun co-op game that won't tire easily.

    Icewind Dale 1 and 2 are great multiplayer! I'm not sure if Baldur's Gate 2 has multiplayer.

    Agreed, but I'd have to say that Timesplitters 2 is even better for Co-op than TS3 is.

    Really, you can't go wrong with Lego Star Wars. Unlimited lives; designed from the ground-up for co-op, yet like all the best co-op games, you can sneakily attack each other..

    I had some good fun playing Dungeon Siege 1 and 2 with a friend of mine over a LAN.

    As others have said, Diablo 2 is also a good one.

    Adventures of Cookie and Cream.
    The PS2 version, not the DS version.
    It's basically made for gamer couples.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    the "no true scotch man" fallacy.

    Warhammer 40k: Dawn of war is pretty awesome.... Yeah.
    Could also try teamwork in world in conflict beta... Should easily kill anything as a support/armor combo.
    System shock 2 if you can find it. Might be hard to get running but is totally awesome coop.
    I also imagine there being a few virtual console titles such as golden axe you could try, but I haven't played those.

    Can't believe I forgot this. Yes times one hundred million, Dynasty/Samurai Warriors fucking rules, best beat-em-ups ever, you must own at least one game from the series.

    As long as your girlfriend has a sense of humor about this kind of thing, I'd take any game where you can fuck over the other person you're 'cooperating' with. Those things are great; the NES had a lot of them. Maybe Virtual Console can help you? Rescue Rangers, River City Ransom, Battletoads... hilarious with the inevitable devolution into repeated backstabbing.
