Star Fox Zero. Oh wait, I think I misread the thread title.

I kinda remember Lego City Undercover using it decently. I wonder how the release on the other platforms works.

In addition to these, I'd say:

Super Mario Maker
Nintendo Land
Game and Wario (Sketch and Islands are both still go-to party games)

Resident Evil 4 was pretty great with it.

I also thought The Godfather game used the Wii controls well.

Thanks for all of the replies. Too bad more games didn't make better use of either the Wii Remote or the Wii U GamePad.

For the WiiU...hands down ZombiU. Rummaging through your backpack contents on the controller screen, in real time, with zombies bearing down on you on the tv screen.
