How about Venture Forth? I picked this up on clearance and was surprised how much I enjoy it. It's alot like Reiner Knizia's cooperative Lord of the Rings game (though it's not designed by Knizia).

It's about managing a group of adventurers that is wandering the land fighting monsters. Despite my describing the game this way, it's really not a "fighting" game.

I'll acknowledge the them is a little bit thin in this game, but I enjoy building up the paths between locations and having to hurry to use them before someone else does. There's also the possibility to make the life of another player much harder by placing a monster he can't beat in his path, but this is more a nuisance than a significant threat.

I think one weakness of the game is that your party members really can't do that much. I would vastly prefer that they gained abilities at level 2 as well as at level 3, but that might cause other problems.

I've only played this game once so far, and I might feel differently later.
