For me the list is:

Sin & Punishment 2: Star Successor.
I wanted to like it, but the gameplay was so boring... and don't even talk to me about the story >.> A really bad way to try and revive a series. Though Kid Icarus followed up with a similar experience, it managed to make the game fun and unique while Sin & Punishment felt lazy.

Punch Out!
I heard so many good things about the original, and thought I'd try the series in it's newest entry... and after doing research and playing through more than halfway of the game myself. It left me feeling like I played an HD version of the original. Another lazy way to reintroduce a series by Nintendo. Though I did love the characters. It's a shame they had to be put in such a shallow game.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles the Crystal Bearers.
Another game I wanted to like! But sadly the dullness of the characters, feeling lost on what was going on story wise, slap on a poor control system and you have the worst Final fantasy I've ever played. Maybe if they added the option to use the CPP I would have tried to play more than about 3 levels of the game before shutting it off and selling it for $3.25 at my local game shop. It was well worth it!

blast works build trade destroy.
Some call it the little big planet of space shooters. and that may be true, but doesn't excuse the boring gameplay and the terrible customization tools. even at $3.00 I feel like i got ripped off.

Super smash bros brawl.
Loved melee, but brawl just ruined the challenge of the game. Though of course the Wii trying to please all ages I can see why they went for a more balanced and less challenging game. And the additional characters this time around feel so bland... could be the fact that they spoiled every character before the game even launched but meh. Just felt like a step back from Melee.

New Super Mario bros Wii.
I like this game. But I nowhere near love it. It felt like the old mario games, but again with the wii pleasing the whole family thing, toned down the challenge of it to low for my liking. and also it felt very bland next to Mario bros. 3 and World. But for a 4 player game it is quite fun :D I love watching my nieces and nephews rage while playing it.

@SamuraiShyGuy Sorry, I don't really make Swapnotes very much but I don't remember getting any from you either.....
I guess that's better than getting one every day from Tech.

Super Mario Galaxy- Sure its fun for one player, but when you play the 2-person mode, all the second player can do is jump, and throw the star thingies. Keep in mind that the 2nd Player is the first player. They just help the first player by jumping, and throwing the stars.

Monkey Mischief- I think of it as boring and a waste of money. No fun games that you can play, and horrible graphics.

M&M's Kart Racing- Pretty hard to steer your kart, SHARP turns, limited amount of karts, bad graphics, and just a horrible game.

Cooking Mama- Is fun at first, but with a Wii-remote, not all of your actions are recorded. Just like the DS game, WITHOUT new recipies, and the competitions are pretty challenging

Animal Crossing City Folk- Not much you can do, besides talk to your city (And do whatever like in the DS game), and the city is disappointing. You can never particapate in the auction, some of the stores are disappointing, and everything sells at a high price. No way to meet other players, really. Just out of place like TysonQ7 said.

What!?lol Punch-Out!! is easily thee' deepest P-O!! in the entire '3 only'(Not including the Arcade game) franchise. Title Defense says high! Also it was basically a remake/tribute to the original, not a straight up sequal in the same tune as Super Punch-Out!! and i think that's what a lot of old school Punch-Out!! fans wanted, to see the return of their favorite characters in this new era of gaming which haven't seen the light of day since the late 80's....

After all, Super P strayed a bit too far from the rythem and forumla of the original and i guess they wanted to bring that some tone and feel from the NES classic that started it all. My only Beebop beef with the game were the jazzy orchestrated track renditions, the dirty beat down colorless exibition beginnier rings and menu/presentation. I also prefer my Punch-Out!! sprite based instead of 3D!

De Blob I don't even have to play it to know that it's dissapointing.
Looks soooooo generic-indie, i can't stand the terrible art direction and the core gameplay looks so mind numbing repetitive.

@Waveboy I agree with most of what you said about Punch-out Wii but I love the cell-shaded graphics in it but I love cell-shaded graphics in general. I also really liked the soundtrack. My favourites are Major circuit, Major circuit title bout, Von Kaiser's theme, Disco Kid's theme, Super Macho man's theme, Mr. Sandman's theme and the head to head theme. I haven't played De blob either but I agree with what you said about it.
I agree with RainbowDash and Malkeor about SSBB being the best game on the Wii too but LKS is amazing!

Lol that's basically what I said: an HD of the original "Punch out featuring mike tyson". and while yes it did pay a great tribute to the original and was geared towards the fans, it just felt like it deserved better you know? Like pull in more people to the series (kind of like Kid icarus did with KI:U) like give us a hub type town to walk around in. Train in different gyms? Ride your bike wearing that awesome pink workout outfit :P, and just giving it more variety but still keep the great boxing aspect.

I don't know maybe I just expected too much going in. Just seemed like they didn't give it enough heart. :/

None of the games are bad but I felt like I pained way too much what what they were worth
AC CF too little to pay $75 for
Punch-Out like the original not completely worth the $10 off coupon I used to buy it NEW
excite Truck paid full price and didn't really play much of it until I demoed Bots at that point this game was about $20
radiant Dawn, paid.full price but I suck at FE games

You might want to play the game. It's quite solid. The music element is clever and builds to reflects what you are doing and with which colors. The multiplayer game is also fun; nothing like following a pal around and repainting everything he paints without him realizing it until he gets to the end of a row of buildings. De Blob was a game I picked up on a whim from a bargain bin and found a pleasant surprise.

As for my Biggest disappointment, that was probably Madworld. I loved the art style and over the top violence/humor, but the gameplay was too repetitive and unoriginal. Well, to be fair, the first few impaling were nice....and the first body through a jet engine was a good time....

Really nothing let me down on the Wii. I look past some of the problems with games and most of them I don't even have problems with. I even like FlingSmash a game that is heavily criticized by most, but there is a small portion of players that enjoy the game. The only things that let me down in some games were the controls. NPC Mario Power Tennis, Mario Super Sluggers and FlingSmash sometimes have controls that are hard to understand. I remember in MSS that trying to hit a specific type of shot ( don't remember which one) was downright broken in trying to use. MPT's controls are sometimes a little off and FlingSmash's controls are a little hard to aim with. Nevertheless I still have fun all three games, because while the controls are a little wonky, their not broken. Though there is one game that looks like it would have let me down if I had bought it. Rabbids Travel in Time, it looked like there were only five genres of mini games, while every time it got harder or had a different plot or theme. I don't own the game so I can't say for sure. But It does not look like I would want to buy it. A let down from the previous four rabbids games, it has been in a mediocre spiral since with games like Rabbids 3D and Alive and Kicking. Hopefully Rabbids Rumble on 3DS and Rabbids Land on Wii U return to franchise to it's former glory.

AC (it was just so much better on a hanheld also the city sucked), Opoona, Super Paper Mario, Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom (why 2 characters when M vs C uses 3 also no one else used tatsunoko characters, Capcom roster was lackluster, roster was kind of small). Other than that all the good games on the Wii were pretty awesome.

I almost forgot, Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearer. Weird thing is that it only slightly dissappointed by what I expected when I bought the game, but the first half hour of the game is so good that it raised expectations a lot for me. And after that it was just ok...but every JRPG ever is just "ok" early on but it never really got past that and nothing happened that mattered...lame...

The Conduit games: I didn't hate these games, but they could've been so much more, IMO.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2: It sucks on all formats...but I played the Wii version first, so yeah.

Samba de Amigo 2: It's fine on the easier modes, but the fact that the controls are as dodgy as they are, is unforgivable, IMO.

NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams: Like Samba - fine ideas, poor execution.

Any WWE game: Dammit THQ, why did you make these versions so inferior?
