Redoing the textures/improving the engine would be a huge job and isn't something that is likely to happen.

How about the upcoming Diablo 3 or Starcraft 2?
Both are games that could make a difference, taking into account their following. They also contain OpenGL renderers for their MacOS port, which means a port could be relatively simple. (I also think one of the main contributors to SDL works for Blizzard, which may or may not be relevant here )
One of the games I had the most fun playing ever was a game called Crusader: No Remorse (a sequel is also available called Crusader: No Regrets). They were at the time created by Origin (as I remember this is an EA division so that already bodes badly) but I am unaware of the current ownership. It's a 1995 game though so anyone still carrying the source around might be hard to find. I will still happily pay to play that game again though (DOSbox might be my best option as I just found the CD again).
Additionally the classic Ground Control would be an amazing thing to revisit on my Linux desktop, I never played the sequel but I will take that one as well. A 2000 game originally by Massive Entertainment and distributed by Sierra. I would add this is the most innovative RTS game I have ever played, at the time it came out it blew away anything else. I dearly miss this one.
Outside of that there is a whole host of old Sierra adventure games I would love to see on Linux, I am a sucker for a good adventure game and they always made good ones.
If the old Fallout 1 and 2 games come through, sign me up for a copy now. These are by far the best RPG games every created for the PC, still not up to the standard of a pnp game but the world was so amazing.

I thought it might be interesting to take a poll of the "Being looked into" list to see which titles are most popular. I've created a poll here:
It isn't the clearest page on account of the number of titles but it will suffice, I think.
Please read the list in the first post as both D3 and Starcraft 2 are there.

Other game I like is Hotel Giant II. Its an interesting game.
Keep the good work.
This post doesn't make clear what "it" is. I'm curious as to which games in that list are more popular than others. A poll might also help to prioritise the efforts of seeking permission.
