You mean like the dragon knights?

I would love to see this! Warrior Princesses or really any other female "Hero" type would be great!
I also would love to see some "third faction" type sets. Meaning forest-men, wolf pack or some other new (Black Falcon?) faction to spice up the Lions v. Dragons.
I agree with our ambassador feline, since the release of fantasy era "castle" we have been blessed with great set after great set.

A suggestion would maybe be to include a minifig with each game of one of the micro-fig characters from that particular set. That figure would be exclusive to that game set (much like they do with the Star Wars books) and desirable to castle collectors, minifig collectors and and added incentive for people buying the game as it gives them a figure they can use in their normal sets.
Or a battle pack of the various characters, eg one of heroes, one of villains. I'm sure army builders would jump at the chance to get a truckload of barbarian torsos, red made hoods, stone golems or the various new heroica-style weapons. These could be sold seperately or an exclusive if you bought spend X-amount on the games.

Most of his plays are set in a medieval era, and, let's face it, I'd also love to see some Classical sets anyway, so bring on those plays as well. Again, you have a set with the key characters and a castle, or the town square of Padua, or other medieval era setting, and include some educational insert describing the play or scene. Again, if the kid wants to ignore the fact that it's Shakespeare and just play with the cool figs and castle they are welcome to. But that added depth would be really cool, and might help teach kids that literature doesn't have to be stuffy. These plays have four centuries of staying power, which is a lot better source material than, say, Avatar the Last Airbender. Bonus - no licensing fees.
You could obviously do other classic literature here as well. So, for instance, the Three Musketeers sets (they've already made the fig), or Beowulf, etc.
