So go to Control Panel > Programs > Turn Windows features on or off.
You can turn off things like games (as well as use group policy to remove them from the start menu if you wish), IIS, XPS (possibly).
Another area to consider tweaking is the system tray to make sure that icons you want users to get used to are always shown (eg battery life, volume control, offline files synch status), while others should be silent until they have some useful information or alert (third-party apps like PDF printers, OneNote launcher, Outlook, firewalls, windows update)
