Using report types



I am building a reporting app that uses mostly custom objects.   I am having a heck of a time trying to avoid bumping into the custom report types limit.  I got some reprieve since there seem to be default report types in the Other Reports folder that I can use to generate reports as long as there is only one lookup required in the report.  For instance if I have a custom object with three lookups in it, I can choose any one lookup and build a report.  For reports that require multiple objects to be looked up, I have resorted to creating a custom report type.


Unfortunately most of my reports/ custom objects will have TWO lookups.  One to either Account or Contact and one to another custom object.


Does anyone know how I accomplish two lookups for a report without resorting to creating a Custom Report Type?
