       [+] and paddle ball, table tennis, ooh: ball or frisbee catch... build a birdhouse with your hammer and saw controllers... in fact the hammer and saw controllers could be an effective part of any game.

       Oooh, paddle ball!!! Table tennis is baked, I'm afraid... I Googled "Wii Ping Pong" and sure enough, it's there. Same with fencing, and every other obscure sport I could think of. Frisbee, however, now *that* sounds fun... except, I just looked, and *that* is baked, complete with a dog that fetches bad throws for you.

       Do you have any idea how hard it was to find a game that could be truly enjoyed on a Wii that wasn't already Baked!? Seriously, Google Wii anything and you'll get hits. Except Paddle Ball, that one was almost Baked, but someone mistook it for Table Tennis and mislabelled the table tennis game. Paddle ball is safe. Thank God!

       I can't imagine this would be any easier on the Wii than it is in real life.

       No, not easier. But just as addictive.

       Coming Soon: Wii Stick with a Hoop.
May I preempt a whole cascade of ideas based on Retro games on a Modern Interface (e.g. the Wii) as an MFD Prior Art?.
<ducks> If you can call game programming "Art"</ducks>
I do loike the idea BTW, but don't wish to 'encourage les autres' you understand.
