According to the written rules A la carte is not for 2 players, but i think it could be easily fixed for 2 players. Excellent game BTW you can find my review of it here:http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/457589/review-a-la-carte-the-suprise-gem-of-essen-2009

The first game I thought of with your parameters was Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age
another 3 I would give a look that have a high FUN factor are
Thunderstone
Carson City

Have a look at Macao, it fits your criteria of being relatively easy to learn, it definitely plays wells with 2, and is certainly less than two hours - unless you play very slowly. It is not all that expensive and I find it fun.

A word of caution though - I don't find Galaxy Trucker fun at all - the spacial assembly stuff just drives me nuts - so my taste in fun could be different than yours.

On the other hand I did find Dungeon Lords (by the same designer) to be way more fun than Galaxy Trucker. Probably doesn't fit your price criteria though, and maybe more complex than you are looking for.

A LA CARTE!!!

A very fun and unique game. Great looking game, will really attract a lot of attention from non-gamers. FUN!
