I'm having a problem with Ico where, when I die, I cannot select an option on the game over screen. I can select between yes and no when prompted to continue, but cannot select either option. I've not been able to find any info on this. It hasn't been a big problem (I've simply restarted my PS2) but I'm not going to be able to finish the last sequence without being able to continue, I just don't have the patience for it.

This is a terrible answer, you may want to hit me right now... but sometimes it could be as simple as this: Are you pressing the right button? I think X is the only button that works on this screen. *ducks away* Don't get mad!
Other suggestions: Try pressing every shoulder button and Start and Select on that screen: On some games this is the combination to reset to the main menu. Don't know if that's the case with ICO.
Furthermore: If you can tell you are going to die (e.g. when falling it's easy to tell): Press Start and choose to end the game to get to the main menu before you actually die.
