I don't even know how many games have been made related to Star Wars (can someone tell me), but it got me to thinking...which themes have the largest number of different games made for them? How many carnival games, for example? Star Trek games? Magic-themed games? Etc...

Superhero games. That covers a lot!

Star Wars, Star Trek, Jurassic Park, Batman, Elvira, Black Knight have all had at least 3 pins made for the franchise.

Other things such as sports themed pins have had a few, such as basketball- NBA fastbreak, space jam, NBA, Harlem globetrotters etc. there have been a few soccer and football themed pins too.

Poker and card themes are probably the biggest type of pinball machines made

Don't know but you can search by theme at ipdb. For example they list 201 games about playing cards.

I might suggest a generic billiards or pool theme -- seems like a lot of those have been made.
