The new 7th ses rules would work superbly for an Eberron game actually. Culture/nation oriented, very pulpy, encourages bravardo, does noir/intrigue well, character-driven mechanics. All you’d need is a more D&Desque magic touch...
The warhammer frpg rules (especially the 2nd edition) work great for that too. I mean the warhammer setting is great, but you can use the rules outside the setting.Savage Worlds is great, especially for low-magic/sword & sorcery settings. There are a few products for that genre too: Beasts and Barbarians, Lankhmar, and Solomon Kane to name a few.
SW is great for any low-magic setting really. The magic system is incredibly modular and not tied to classes (SW uses skill-based advancement) so it's really easy to tailor the rules so the setting.
Huh, I had not known Green Ronin had genericized their A Song of Ice and Fire system. I guess the Game of Thrones license ran out since I don't see the RPG books anymore.Birthright: Sword Chronicle (aka Game of Thrones RPG)
It would require a fair amount of hacking, but Mage: The Ascension has a lot of tonal fit with Planescape (factions jockeying for their philosophy to take control of reality), and everyone being some kind of caster fits better with the setting, I think.

Spelljammer could work with Castle Falkenstein and I could see a Mystara campaign using the Dark Eye system.I don't have strong opinions on the "default" settings, and the others settings I care about-- Spelljammer and Mystara-- are so quintessentially D&D I can't imagine them being played in a different system.
I could see Mythras working for the Nentir Vale as well.I haven't tried this, but I would quite happily use Mythras for a Theros game, or for a more low-magic game in any generic setting. For more lyrical or saga feeling games I'd probably use a modified Dungeon World rules set.
Forgotten Realms seems to have a lot of famous characters of very disparate power levels, so maybe a Cortex type game? You could have Elminster, Drizzt and Volo in the same party.
I did propose either Exalted or Mythras. From what I recall, Sundered World for Dungeon World came out of a gonzo post-apocalyptic 4e homebrew setting based on the PoL setting with touches of Spelljammer. I could likewise see Dungeon World working for Nentir Vale.Any thoughts on the World Axis/PoLand?
