    All the Wild Arms games do this a lot, with using various of your tools with terrain features to trip switches or move things.

    Will happen at least once a Legend Of Zelda game, usually with puzzles such as activating an ice covered switch by firing an arrow through a flame/latern/candle.

    The Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy text adventure game has (at least) one of these.

    A minor version of this appears in Half Life. To avoid being turned into swiss cheese by a tripod turret placed around a corner, bounce a grenade or two off the wall to knock it down. Tripmines are often defused in a similar manner.

    Black and White has two of these, and the sequel has one.
