I'm sure those types of games would be better received and sell better than normal VNs, which might actually make things better for normal VNs overall, IMO.

Eushully games. Softhouse Chara. Alicesoft. Although, Alicesoft rejected JAST USA's advances; they're not interested.
Personally, I think the recent Ikusa Megami games (Zero and Verita) and Wizard's Climber would be sure to win over some Western fans. Marketing a "porn game" is hard no matter how you slice it though. The mentality of Western gamers dooms such games to 4 digit sales. That's not going to change anytime soon. Not when piracy is such a convenient alternative that covers your identity and allows you to dismiss the hobby even while you're enjoying it.
I looked some of those companies' games up in VNDB. The one I'm most familiar as far as seeing screencaps and discussion is Sengoku Rance, but it's already fan-translated.
Personally I'd like to see Galzoo Island (although it's 5 years old) or Himegari Dungeon Meister translated/localized. Assuming they don't have anything localization companies might have issue with.
