Yeah I'm going to throw in my lot here too.
Stop. Just stop using this timeframe. Please. ENOUGH already.

What I'd really like to see is a proper Sith/Dark Side focused game, one that isn't just about killing randoms because that's what "evil" types do. Something that charts your rise from apprentice to seizing the mantle of Master, then recruiting your own apprentice (and maybe being taken down by them as a nice way to end).
Well, the Knight Errant period is kind of exciting and it takes place about a generation before Bane. Its (darker) successor series is currently underway in comics.
It's a time where the old republic is severly decayed from milennia of war with the sith since...well probably since SWTOR. So bad it practically doesn't exist, meanwhile colossal titans in the forms of sith warlords warred with each other and the republic's remnants over territory. It'd be interesting to find out more about some obscure ancient sith and jedi during this time. A ton of creative and new content could be made that doesn't necessarily have to be tied in (which I think would be the better for it) with the films. It's fodder for new stuff and yet not too radical of a departure either.
The stories of Darth Bane were more about drawing it all to a close and into a period of quieting it all down, making the galaxy at large believe followers of the sith way were extinct while he worked in the cover and seclusion of secrecy. I do agree it'd be interesting to see made into a movie trilogy but at the same time I'm not particularly excited to see a movie adaptation of something which already is well established. I like the idea but not as much as something more open. We have to break away if it is to grow.
