Thank you for all of the incredible feedback. Believe me when I say it has not fallen on deaf ears.
I see many app suggestions within your feedback and thank you for it. We are continuing to update our app offerings to accommodate just about anyone wanting apps on their devices.
However some apps are still missing, and to that end I'm starting this thread.
Please make your suggestion(s), via this thread but with one caveat. In order to gather your information more effectively and more accurately, please give identical app suggestions a Kudo. This will be our active tally of what is most wanted by the community and will help us hotlist apps for you.
Needless to say, this does not guarantee the availability of the app(s) in question; but it is definitely a step in the process.
Again, thank you all for your continued participation in our B&N Community. I look forward to seeing what we can cook up!

Old Time Radio Player (can be found on both the Android Market and Amazon's) - plays a ton of old radio shows
Volume+ (can be found on the Android Market) - boosts the volume level; if the speakers are going to be in the back, I really think a booster for them needs to be available
Overdrive Media Console - since library books can already be viewed on the Nooks, this would simply make them more convenient

(apologies to B&N for the Android Market links, but the easiest place to go for links, plus same OS)
Pinball (any pinball games really, link has good reviews)
Euchre (or any trump card games, online capabilites preferred, link has good reviews)
-Any ports of classic 8-bit and 16-bit video games would be awesome too
-PopCap Games in general, I know a certain other internet giant has an exclusive contract, but snap that up as soon as you can. PC is the king of casual computer gaming
Applications (to shorten my list, I'm going to focus on music):
Spotify streaming music player
Node Beat interactive music creator
SiriusXM radio service (why is this not here yet with Liberty Media on board?)
Slacker Radio radio service
iHeart Radio radio service
Soundcloud streaming music player
also any sort of equalizer added to the default options or so, I realize a widget is out of the question, but please give me some control of the sound output
I know this is a list, but these are all popular apps on the other services and nothing from out of left field, and wanted to at least put my wants out there

I'm so glad one of these posts exists!
I would like to see; in no particular order:
Plants vs. Zombies

This was already mentioned in another thread, but I'd like to reiterate my desire to see Autodesk Sketchbook Mobile available in Nook Apps.

This is my first eReader and I just got the Nook Tablet the other day. I LOVE it!!!
Improvements that would be good:
Apps - Words with Friends, Weather
On the Calendar it would be good if the entry titles appeared on the month view.
Magazines - I would like more variety! I'm a horse person and there are no equestrian magazines. Practical Horseman, Chronicle of the Horse, EQUUS, etc would be awesome.
Searching the Nook Books on the NT has been somewhat unwieldy for me so far... unless I have something specific like a title or author to search for, it seems the only other option is to scroll through long lists of very basic genres. Can we have more specific categories to make browsing easier?
I would also like to be able to connect a keyboard to the nook somehow... wirelessly? Or wired if need be.

You can see many of these in the pulse app!
ETA: I was trying to respond to The_Walrus_43 but I don't know how to include their text.

Here are two Business related apps I would like to see. They are both on Android and Amazon.
VMWare View Client
When my Nook Color was rooted the Citrix Receiver worked perfectly.
I have tried side loading the Citrix Receiver on my NT and it installs and configures no problem, but all attempts to launch an published app fail with an application error message.

Bluetooth so I can listen to Pandora Radio on a decent speakers at night while falling asleep in bed, where headphones are out of the question. Also, a sleep timer app.
