So I have a few games that I would love to play (and I think they'd be staples) but for a variety of reasons I don't think I'll ever get to play them. Mostly it is due to time constraints, but also due in large part to not having the right group that would like either the weight or the time.
#Dune - So much of what I've heard about this game makes me want to play it. Based on one of my favorite books of all time. Great at higher player counts. Lot of negative player interaction. The chance to backstab. I haven't done too much research because I don't think I'd ever play it, but what I know sounds awesome.
#Twilight Imperium 4th Edition - I still don't have a 4x SciFi game in my collection and I'd love to get one. This falls into the category of just not enough time. Seems like I'd love it though.
#Star Wars: Rebellion - Another game in a Universe I love (for the most part), but just seems like it'd be way to long.
#War of the Ring (Second Edition) - I could almost say the same thing as I did above. Middle Earth is the most fascinating literary world I've ever experienced. I just need, time, time and more time...
#Pax Pamir (Second Edition) - I think so much of this game looks awesome to me, and I think I'd really enjoy it. But I don't know if my gaming group(s) would. I also have no idea about time on this one. Maybe the solo mode by itself is worth it (@philryuh), but it's hard for me to consider picking up a game to basically solely (pun intended) play solo.
