Trinity. The number one game, absolutely.
Nobody has mentioned Starcross but I thought that one was pretty fun. It had a sort of generic sci-fi story, but the puzzles were interesting in that they involved using the same items repeatedly in different situations, in different ways... remember those teleporter discs? (As opposed to the usual "key/door" situation where the bucket is just a red card key and the well is just the red door, and when you tie the bucket to the rope so you can dip it into the well and get whatever's in the bottom, that's just you using the red cardkey to get through the red door. You know what I mean.)
Also I thought Hollywood Hijinx was fun, if somewhat arbitrary. Who can forget the Atomic Chihuahua From Hell mini-game? (though that did have the problem of "screw up, and you must reload, and you definitely will screw up").
