@Emilio: Mushroom Men was pretty decent. I've heard good things about Excitebots as well...

Muramasa! Is it underrated, though? Dunno.

Its a pretty barren console. I think any hits it has are instantly thrust into the spotlight meaning that there are no obscure good Wii games.

@BunkerBuster: I'll second the vote for Zack and Wiki.  It's a nice little game with a classic point & click adventure twist thrown in.  It also makes good use of Wii motion controls, unlike most of the games that came out for the system!

@zegolf: Amen to that.  
 
To everyone looking at this thread, next time you see this game at Gamestop or what have you don't hesitate to buy it. You won't regret it.

A Boy and His Blob and Little King's Story.

I'd highlight the latter as being one of the best games on the system.  Definitely worth a go!

there are still games that get overlooked because they got only 7s in reviews but should still be on people's radars
 
all those mentioned above plus:
Cursed Mountain
Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon
 Red Steel 2
Deadly Creatures
  Boom Blox  and/or Boom Blox Bash Party
Lost in Shadow
and if you don't have a PS3 with Move and plan on buying the Dead Space 2 LE then get Dead Space: Extraction on Wii! 
maybe even MadWorld if you care for its craziness
and if you need to chill out and not worry about someone attacking you: Endless Ocean 2
 
on the download-exclusive side (where usually the really overlooked gems are) you need to check out:
And Yet It Moves
LostWinds 2: Winter of the Melodias
NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits 
there are more, like that diving game with the NyxQuest engine (just called Dive: something something I think) and Tomena Senner ( spelled right?) or the Bit.Trip games that I haven't checked out myself yet

@DeF: Thats a really good list. I personally wish there were more love for the Wii on this forum. There are just so many fantastic games on the little thing, it's my favorite console now. (right next to PC)
