Yet Another Video Game Question: What are good video games for couples?

Recently, mr. kerning and I got an Xbox 360 for Christmas, and somebody was nice enough to give us Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe along with it. We were very excited to play, and play we did until, after a particularly brutal round involving Katana and Batman, we realized that we are both just too competitive to play against each other. (Except we're okay playing each other at Mario Kart)
So I'm looking for games that we can play together, not against each other. We've been playing the co-op part of Left4Dead and we enjoy that, but first-person shooters aren't exactly my favorite type of game. We like Rock Band, but would never buy it because our apartment is tiny and it's just the two of us. Games like Super Mario Galaxy (which is one of my favorites) aren't great because the second player isn't really participating. He likes Zelda-type games, but i hate them. We both enjoy puzzle games like the Professor Layton series.
We have an Xbox and a Wii. We have most of the Mario games out, including the latest one, and all of the Lego games (except for the Rock Band one). We have the Katamari game for the Xbox (my favorite!), Arkham Asylum, MKvsDCU and Left4Dead.
Bonus points for Xbox Arcade suggestions!
