Stephen Kings Dark Tower setting would fit very good in a point and klick adventure, I think. I'd love to play one.

Star Wars.

But the choice wasn't that easy - I'd like to see all the listed as P&C games. The Cliver Barker/Horror option was a nice addition. But we have a lot of horror games, like Alone in the Dark 1&2, Dark Mirror, Dark Seed 1&2 and so on.
Anyway, there have been some Narnia arcade games lately in the Harry Potter videogames vein, but they are cheap products to be bundled along with the movies. Nothing important to speak of. But the novels have the potential. And Lord of the Rings? There has been a game called The Hobbit in the 8-bit era that was popular, it could have had a remake.
Harry Potter is such a case, it had several games but only because of the movies. "Fantasy" has a lot of potential, especially this story, it had a lot of puzzles in the novels by default, there could have been many spin-offs and such. And the Dark Tower? Well, I could only read a few pages from them in a bookstore, since I didn't have cash to buy them, but the story totally caught my attention - wild western post-apocalyptic fantasy, what else is there to say?!

I would say Harry Potter, maybe because I'm imagining it similar to Simon the Sorcerer.
The London setting mixed with magic places like Hogwarts castle suit perfectly a puzzle/point & click adventure where you have to explore rooms, find secrets, prepare recipies and so on.

Star Wars would be interesting but it's more a setting for action games IMHO.

Main problem for me with all worlds above is too hero-oriented world. You know everything about Middle Earth, Harry Potter or Dracula. So it will be either recreation of novel with artificially placed puzzles, or "fanfic" that I never fond of.

Well, obviously, two worlds are not so inclined to familiar heroes - Star Wars and Dark Tower. First is very detailed, so you can make any plot in it, and second have holes - well, whole canyons! - about everything, including main plot, and is multiverse actually that makes it even more open. I voted for Dark Tower, as I seen many adventures in SW world, but nothing for King.
