Research and Development is a puzzle-centric mod for Half-Life 2: Episode Two featuring an unarmed player but plenty of violent mayhem.
A fantastic puzzler set in the Half Life universe. The most unique aspect of this is that it is not devoid of action, explosions, and death; instead you are simply not wielding weapons. The game is about 1/3rd action, 1/3rd logic, and 1/3rd platforming; It is an enjoyable experience only lessened somewhat by the rather shallow and easy puzzles.
