Hero Quest & Space Crusade -type games would be nice, and also the ability to play the strategy/board games with multiple players over the network would be really really nice. Carcassone gets my vote as well!

Thank you all for your comments! We listen!
I just wanted to mention that we have published a new board game Reversi Deluxe:
Available now on your NC!
The game features fun 3 computer players (by the level of difficulty) with unique personalities in single-player mode. You can also challenge a friend and make your NC a table top board for Reversi with a unique hot-seat design.
Please, let us know what you think!

Stay simple at first. You're not going to be able to find an enormous market niche at first, but, here's what you must know: a really good strategic game application will keep your base very loyal, but I understand the software developers must pick and choose what's best.
Here's my take. Do market research on who are the most loyal gameplayers, and what games they play. Allow for network games. Trust me, you'll win the apps war hands down.
Here's my list:
Diplomacy - simple, yet entertaining.
Simple strategic board games from the WWII, Civil, or Napoleonic wars.
A classic wooden ships and iron men game originally from avalon hill.
A simple hex-based RPG - simple but make it multiplayer over a network.
Possible? I'm sure it is. The problem is, finding and marketing the killer application, finding the loyal gameplayers, and advertising like mad. You just need one to hook the community, but make it a strategic game played by adults. It's a really tough world with all the competition, but it's your best hope.

I would very, very, very much appreciate a version of Mahjongg that played REAL Mahjongg. Not the tile matching games that are mis-named Mahjongg. Hong Kong rules would probably be most popular but Japanese Riichi rules would be awesome. And if you could make it so that you could play online (vs real people) OR offline (vs computer opponents) it would really rock. I'd even put you on my Christmas Card list
Another good board/strategy game to get to market ..... TALISMAN! Oh the numerous, sleepless nights spent playing that. Just the basic set would be fine, no need for the bazillion expansion packs ... at least to start.

One of the early Final Fantasies would be great, if you could get the license.
Maybe this isn't quite strategy, but more games like Carcassone! Setters of Catan, Ticket to Ride, Race for the Galaxy, Dominion (I know that's not out yet). Pretty much anything that's ever won a Spiel des Jahres.

I"ll echo something akin to Age of Empires where you have to build and conquer would be great.
Go is something also many of us well loved for many intellectual battles.

I'm hoping to find Alchemy in Nook Apps, or something very very similar. thanks.

If running CM7 android OS and not default B&N then have a lot more options.
Space Strategy games are popular.

I know this is quite late but...
You said (in reply to Lloyd):
"I think you are talking about an emulator to run the console games? Unfortunately, we cannot do that due to the copyright/legal issues."
It has been ruled in a court of law that emulators are not illegal or an infringement of copyright, it is when people download and use copyrighted game files to use on said emulator that it becomes illegal, but the emulator itself is not illegal.
