I think one of the coolest things is the idea a board game could have experience and level ups, similar to Descent's campaign features, as well creatures that can level up with you, or be leveled up or down. I would highly favor the game if it were solitaire playable. Someone in this forum mentioned a strict sci-fi game and if there were a close-up look of the board like Mansions and Gears, then I'd imagine that game would be fantastic.
