Suggestion: CYOM (create your own marine)

I really love the current characters, but I think it would be awesome if in future campaigns and single missions players would be able to create their own marines. Basically just pick a model+voicepack+avatar, set your specialty (tech/explosives) etc, set all stats to 1 and perhaps even give him one or two points to spend beforehand.

Customisation > all.

Every time you play online, the marines are played by different people anyway. Not really much of a personality there.

I think this is a very good, very standard idea that would make customising the voice/model a great part of Alien Swarm...

Although I think giving stat points before the start of your first SP, Campaign or even in MP is a bit generous...

Perhaps the addition of characters with adjustable profiles could be implemented so that when you finish certain levels an additional player character becomes available to you ?....perhaps thats a bit much though....
