Weird, obscure, overlooked or crappy 360 exclusives - list them!

There used to be a very good topic on obscure games which is now archived.

Since buying my 360, I've decided to collect the obscure system exclusives, especially those which people don't like (Kengo, for example, is a fun Bushido Blade style fighter with Dreamcast visuals - it is BADASS).

I'm going to list what I own, what I intend to buy, and I'd like some recommendations to add to my FUTURE BUY LIST. I'm listing everything, including the obvious stuff like Lost Odyssey.

Only 360 exclusives. If it's on PS3, then I'd rather get the PS3 version, for various reasons. So 360 exclusives only. If it's a port from PC, or was later ported to PC, that's fine. I'm not really a PC gamer. So for example, the Civil War: Secret Missions sequel, I'd probably get on PS3.

My 360 is Canadian, so the games must be NTSC-U or region free. But feel free to chat about Japan only obscurities (I was playing the demo for Zegapain XOR - OH MY GOD it is amazing, so wish it was region free).

I'm really hoping to unearth more obscure "crap" like Kengo. I never read anything about it, and it's so unusual.I'm sure there's a ton of weird stuff out there.

Recommend away!

I own:

Alan Wake
Bullet Witch
Call of Juarez (first one)
Civil War: A Nation Divided
Culdscept Saga
Darkstar One
Dead Rising
Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm
Dead or Alive Xtreme 2
Gears of War 1&2
Kengo: Legend of the 9 - (this game is awesome!)
Mass Effect

Oneechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad
Operation Darkness - (probably my favourite 360 game)
Otomedius Excellent
Project Sylpheed
Spectral Force 3 - (I hated this game - sold it!)

Sneak King
Witcher 2, The

Not too obscure, but certainly weird and overlooked: Deadly Premonition

Oops, should have mentioned, have Red Seeds Profile on PS3, the JPN release of Deadly Prem, and I borrowed the US release from a friend. So I've rinsed it twice. Great, great, GREAT game.

I thought The Saboteur was awesome, and hardly anyone has heard of it. It was an open world game that takes place during WWII in Paris, great game.

Halo Wars is often overlooked, even though it is part of the Halo franchise. Best console RTS out.

Dust: AET

I can't remember if Hydro Thunder is on PS3, but it's awesome.
Kansas is full of good men, I don't want to be a good man. I want to be a great one.
