What would the Nintendo Wii be without its excellent line-up of games? It was the games like Wii Sports that attracted one of the largest audiences in video game history.
An excellent way to start reverse engineering is to find games where the developers accidentally left the Debug symbols in the retail release of the game. While this is not very common it has happened for a few games released for the Wii. This gives you access to all the original function and variables names that were used in the original source code!
