What are some good cooperative or "soft competition" games for the DS/Wii?

My wife and I are looking for some console games to play together. We currently own a Wii and are looking into also getting a pair of DS systems. We enjoy all sorts of games but are specifically looking for strategy/action oriented games that feature either cooperative play or soft competition (games that have you competing to accomplish an objective, but not necessarily head-to-head FPS-type stuff). Some games that have piqued our interest along these lines are Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates on the cooperative side and 1701 AD: Dawn of Discovery for soft competition.
For the Wii, most of our multi-player games are more along the party game style (Wario Ware and MP8) which are great in a group setting but aren't really engaging for 2. We're definitely getting Mario Kart Wii when it comes out, but are there any games that fall into the categories above for the Wii (we have Marvel: Ultimate Alliance but the control system is a bit clunky and for that kind of game X-Men Legends 2 for PS2 was really superior).
