We usually have the inverse problem. Recently we played Legendary Creatures and A Handful of Stars for the first time. Both games played fine at two players but we both felt like they were meant for at least three. Which makes us feel like maybe when it's just the two of us that we should stick to our collection of two player only games. We've played a few games that feature a "dummy player" option to help with this but it never feels right.

I'm right there with you I feel most of my games are best played with 3 people and a couple of them I won't even bring out for less than 4.
