I think at the very least, the pack-in games ought to include those uber-games that everybody likes to play. Solitaire and the rest of the card games are okay, I suppose, but I'd like to see a form of Tetris and perhaps Bejeweled there as well. I think other classics that have universal appeal just never got the proper exposure and interface to really reach out to the masses. I'm thinking of games like Qix, Lemmings, and Boulder Dash--all easy-to-pick-up games entirely playable with the keyboard/mouse and with very low overhead and the potential for great fun.
I remember plenty of folks back in college who could sit in front of Solitaire on Windows 95 and play it all night long. I'm not kidding. My brain would turn to frost after half-an-hour. But, then again, I've been having difficulty getting other people interested in games as good as Neverwinter Nights and Balder's Gate, so maybe there's just something in the genes. :-)
