If he spent more time on these stories, would we have got The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings?

Possibly depressing poll...which of Tolkien's abandoned/unfinished writings would you have most liked to have seen finished and published in his lifetime? Can't Post

Although a part of me is inclined to say all of them, I would have loved to have seen Tuor and His Coming to Gondolin and Aldarion and Erendis completed (probably my two fave stories of his after LOTR) and the Prose version of the Lay of Leithian (I haven't read the whole poem yet, what I have is great...but I prefer narrative stories over poems), whilst A Farmer Giles of Ham sequel, and the 1960 rewrite of The Hobbit would have been intriguing to see, but not totally merited or posistive IMO.

Your Thoughts?

Were you glad or sad so much was left unfinshed?, do you think Tolkien would have been pleased they were publsihed as unfinsihed writings? Or was Tolkien simply too much of a 'niggler' for his own good?
