Default Games that MUST have sequels

Thinking the other day, after completing mirrors edge how much I enjoyed it, from the story to the setting, and thought about sequels.

We've seen all too often that games that should get sequel'd get left on the shelf, and games that don't deserve a second coming get their franchise raped over and over again, and finally games that need a sequel get a badly done one (halo 2 anyone :).

So what games have you enjoyed a lot, and would love to see a sequel for? It doesn't matter if there be rumours for a second, or its confirmed, just post games you want to see a sequel for and why.

For me:

Mirrors Edge - Loved the setting, was a real change of place, and watching the credits to hear about the "terrorist" attack on the shard made me want more, plus there is a lot they can do to take it further. Current status - rumoured Trilogy.

Mass Effect - From the ending of that game, you know there is still danger out there. Not to mention there is so much potential to take it further with more interaction with the races, more races to introduce etc. Current Status - 2nd confirmed.

Assassin's Creed - Another game I really enjoyed playing, not to mention the story left a lot open for a sequel. Current Status - Confirmed.

Timeshift - A personal favourite of mine, I enjoyed being able to command time. Stuck by a nade? Rewind. Want that hilarious freeze time and kill ten people then watch them react? Brilliant. Would like to see another. Current Status - Unlikely.

[hr]

So, just a few from me, luckily most are confirmed. I'd have mentioned something about Gears, but until I can play numero 2, I want to hold fire on the gears front for now.

Battlefield bad company.

Imagine where they could go with that beast of a game.

Maybe a mercenaries style remix.

I suppose Duke Nukem Forever would be quite nice, if they ever got around to it...

For sure! This is perhaps my favorite game ever!

For me the game that absolutly needs a sequel is Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross. That was a title copyrighted at one time, Chrono Break, but it never became anything.

Other games that I would like to see more of:

Deus Ex Series
Legacy of Kain Series
Lost Oddessy

I guess my suggestions have already had sequels, but I want sequals to the sequels!

I can tell you right now that I am almost completely certain that they are going to make a third Gears of War.

And, if the second is any indication, it won't be crap

Other than Gears of War, I wouldn't mind some kind of Crackdown sequel (not necessarily a sequel as it had pretty much NO story, but it was a fun game and I'd like to see a newer, better version of it).
Uhhh... another Hitman - I realize Blood Money was the 4th or 5th but it's still LOADS of fun.
I'll add to this as I think of more :-\
