D20 System is cool. Great for action packed hack-and-slash games with a focus on tactics, random chance, and character optimization. It jas worked for D&D and Star Wars, as well as unofficial RPGs for Lord of the Rings, Mass Effect, and Magic: the Gathering.

I think it would be really cool to see D20 System published as a generic rules engine, similar to GURPS (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/) or BRP (http://catalog.chaosium.com/index.php?cPath=37&osCsid=01fa94c84102a51f8ff553dfa36e2074). By default, it could be very simple and bare-bones, and could have piles of optional rules derived from various D20 games, such as Condition Tracks, Encounter Powers, Prestige Classes, and Saving Throws. The basic rules should be vague enough that any of the D20 games could have been based on them.
