I'm not sure of many unfortunately. I'd like to know of some though.

My favorites would be F-Zero, 1080, Waverace, Excite Truck/Bots/Bike.

Nintendo (Advance) Wars. Getting WarGroove recently was nice, but it still doesn't compare to Nintendo's polished tactical turn-based strategy series.

Golden Sun also really dropped off after the first two, fantastic, games. I felt mixed about Dark Dawn when I played it, but it was still better than the series just dying off completely.

The reason for both of these games not receiving sequels in a while is mainly that Intelligent Systems is focused on Fire Emblem (also great!) and Camelot keeps making Mario sports games. (Was mostly good on the GBC.)
