Super Paper Mario, Okami, Mario Galaxy, Zelda: Twilight Princess, Smash Bros Brawl, Mario Kart Wii. I've heard No More Heroes is great, and I've also been meaning to pick up Bully: Scholarship Edition. If you like Metroid, it sounds like the version for Wii is good. I never liked Metroid, so I can't say. I got my brother the new Rune Factory for his birthday, and from what I saw, it seems pretty good. Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz is pretty fun, too, but it's not worth it unless it's cheap. I think I saw that someone suggested Mario Party to you - don't get MP 8, because it doesn't really have any good boards. Go for one of the Gamecube ones (although not Mario Party 4 - that one's awful. Mario Party 3 for N64 is still the best.) In fact, there are a ton of awesome GC games to get if you don't have any of those.
FYI, though, I've probably played my Wii a cumulative 20 hours this whole year, and I'm a huge gamer. I'm just not good at setting time limits for myself, so I choose not to pick up the controller rather than play for 5 hours and not get any work done. If you're gonna be like that, you're probably good with just a game (I've been playing Okami the whole year. for me, that is blasphemy.)
My finals study breaks have mostly been playing Mario Kart 64 with my friend.
