Games with Gestures ?

I'm wondering why there aren't many games that use gestures. Is it not fun or too difficult to play? Please let me know your thoughts! I'm very curious about this.

The few that I do know of are:
- The Force Unleashed
- Monster Kill
- Harry Potter Spells

I wouldn't consider Fruit Ninja one since I think it's swiping at fruit rather than drawing a pattern.

Are there more games out there that use gestures?

Monster Kill is the best gesture game that I know of.

I think Silent Swords has gestures in it as well, but only on kill combos - most of the game is not gesture controlled.
