I'm thinking that games like The Last Express, Still Life and Fahrenheit tackled mature themes rather well, despite the latter two getting flack for violence and/or sexuality. Personally, I don't find the level of sexuality in the latter games to be gratuitous (even if the sex scene you actually play out is pretty awkward and incomprehensible, and the violence in both was mroe than the average adventure game delves into. they were far more poignant than the average FPS, and the sex was far less salacious than GTA. But then, I'm a bit incorrigibly corrupt, so I'm perhaps not the best judge.
