The best Kinect PlayFit games/activites for calories.

I made this thread to help organize the best activities in each game to add PlayFit calories. Any help would be greatly appreciated and will be added to this post. I'll be taking info from the other thread and adding it into this thread also.

Official games:

Big League Sports
- Doesn't Work?

Deepak Chopra's Leela
-"Once you get Leela, do ONLY the "PLAY" side if you want any calories to count." (tmnterminator)
-"Leela: I've burned over 500 on Leela alone from just two sessions... try the harder ones on play, or do the last two on "sequence". I think intuition and power are the big 'burners'." (Dalek Nation)
-"as soon as I got to "Power", it jumped way up, and "Love" is giving just as many. " (DragonessAthena)

Dance Central 2
-"The calorie count isn't so much registered by movement but by song and difficulty" (Thee Elf)

Happy Action Theater
-Director Mode?

Junk Fu
-Just play as is.

Kinect Disneyland
-Works but don't know which specific minigame is the best.

Kinect Sports Season 2
-"I'd say an average of about 30 calories can be had completing a football game or tennis game (3 sets) as well. Darts is the worse, and skiing gives very little as well" (tmnterminator)

Kinect Star Wars
-"Even if you boot up Galactic Dance off right away without leaving the play area, you will sign in as a guest if you just continue. You HAVE to wave on sign in and choose your profile AGAIN before the song starts." (Benmahalf X)
-"it burns around 300 per completed story, so play through the story twice and you'll hit your 600 or should" (Adork4ble)

Let's Cheer!
-Works but don't know which specific minigame is the best.

Sesame Street Once Upon a Monster
-"when i got the calories to register it was on one of the mini games in chapter 2 or 3" (Blarghinator)

Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012
-Works but has same problem as Star Wars with the Kinect ID.
-"Keep activities short to lesson your chance at having the entire activitie's calories forfeited" (Dalek Nation)

Unofficial games:

Just Dance 3
-Adds total calories but doesn't count toward the "600 calories in 4 games" achievement.

Just Dance Greatest Hits
-Adds total calories but doesn't count toward the "600 calories in 4 games" achievement.
