Default Co-op Gaming Advice

I was wondering what sort of games people may have to suggest/recommend that the two of us can play together in co-op mode for the most part and she's never been the type to enjoy playing against others online (with the exception of L4D2 but some of you know my little vendetta against that game).

To get an idea of her taste of games (and ones we've played together over the years):
Command & Conquer 3
Age of Empires 3
Halo 1-3 on 360
Gears of War 1-2 on 360 (will be playing #3 together when it comes out tomorrow)
Borderlands
Fable 2 on 360 (though both were disappointed with the game and game play mechanic
L4D on 360

I would suggest Warhammer 40k Space Marine, however it doesn't have coop play yet (will be included in a DLC later). The game is quite fun, I think you'll both enjoy it.

That's a game that's on the fence as I already own it and she saw/would watch me play the campaign from time to time. I'm slightly hoping the co-op DLC isn't just the regular campaign rehashed

F1 2011 has co-op. Race as teammates through a season of F1.

Though, dunno if that's what your looking for, but with steam's countdown there is little else on my mind today.

Original Ghost Recon + expansions. Also Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 1&2 have coop.(in the case of one you have to make sure it is fully patched to get OGR coop mode)
Orig GR is better for two people though imo. You kinda want a bigger team for GRAW since the custom maps have hundreds of baddies.

Rainbow Six Vegas 1&2 have coop, though I do not recall if the older R6 titles do.

Bungie's Marathon (Halo's pappy/grandpappy or something) has coop.

What about Rainbow Six Vegas and Vegas 2 on the 360? Alright games for a bit of mindless "together time"

Looks like I got beat to those ones.

Perhaps on the RB6 stuff on PC, though I remember playing the two trying to be as stealthy as possible to catch enemies off guard.

No dice on Dead Island, we both agree its unappealing as well as no thanks to a game chalk full of glitches and bugs.

There are no bugs on PC damnit. Haven't ran into a single issue yet.
