Weren't there two CDi Zelda games?  I have never seen a CDi in person. 

 

There are actually three! But one of them is very different than the other two and a lot less well known. The first two were Zelda II esque platformers with some very quotable cutscenes.

This haiku is referring to one of the three.

I cheated by using google since I don't know these games. 

Link:  The Faces of Evil. 

You’re pretty good, here: (point)

Keep going, boy, you’re doing real well! Once you get rid of Ganon, we can get back to fishing!

And @socrates63, about the bonus point: you want it? It’s yours, my friend, as long as you have enough rubies!

Star Raiders of the Lost Ark!

I mean, just Star Raiders...

That's it!

They changed the name of the aliens to Krylons for the 2600 version!  Why?  It makes no sense.  In any case, it's clear that the BSG Cylons were the inspiration for the alien fleet.

Here is a second haiku for more hints.

It's a licensed game

It features a blonde hero

And a rich villain 

I'm going to go with a wild guess of "WWF WrestleMania". 

Blonde hero = Hulk Hogan.  Rich villain?  The Iron Sheik?  I have no idea about the crosses...but the giant is Andre the Giant.

You got it! The rich villain is the Million Dollar Man. Each player has an icon that can show up during the match to pick up for health. For Hulk, it was his cross he often wore around his neck.
