Anyone know about Eggerland? It was a series from a long time ago by HAL Laboratory. I'd like to see something else become of that; I think its last appearance was in some PC game compilation in 2000 or 2001.
Also, for that matter, a true return to the Shinobi series would be much appreciated. (remember, the one with Joe Musashi?)
Shenmue, I think, is best left in the past, though it was great while it lasted. I just don't think it'd translate well to modern times. Also, Sega is really on its last legs by this point anyway; we'll be lucky to even get more than a couple of Sonic games out of them before they crash.

I mean, seriously!
Port Redigitize and Adventure for 3DS! SOMETHING!
The US actually hasn't gotten that many Digimon games, period, considering how many Japan has. The first Digimon game was Japan-only, and it was on the Sega Saturn. Of course, we also never got the WonderSwan or WonderSwan Color, and there were a few Digimon games there, too. I think there also may have been a couple on the PS1 that we never got.
I honestly don't like Digimon games that much. They've always seemed a little simplistic and contrived to me, though I do look back on the late '90s and early '00s (my childhood) with extreme nostalgia, and Digimon is no exception (the show, at least, which I rarely watched but talked about with my friends). Nevertheless, the attention given to the franchise in the US seems a little low considering the size of its fanbase, and it is a little odd that Japan's gotten so many Digimon games that we haven't.
