Invasion of Malaya: December 8, 1941 - January 31, 1942 The British possession of Malaya was a major source of rubber and tin. At its tip was the powerful naval base on the island of Singapore. Veteran Japanese troops of the 25th Army landed in the north and pushed through the jungle terrain. British forces, though nominally more numerous, were poorly equipped and inexperienced and were defeated by the end of January 1942. Great map among many others with the Brits fightin the Japs. http://www.onwar.com/maps/wwii/pacific1/1malaya4142.htm

Conquest of Bataan: January 7 - April 9, 1942 By mid-January American and Filipino forces in the Philippines had retreated into the mountainous Bataan Peninsula of Luzon as well as holding the island of Corregidor immediately to the south, blocking Manila Bay. Homma wrongly believed the defenders almost defeated and launched assaults that depleted his forces. A protracted period of trench warfare followed. The American command surrendered on April 9th. I have a naging feeling this has been suggested, and from of the search results may be in the works http://www.onwar.com/maps/wwii/pacific1/1bataan42.htm

Battle of Savo Island: August 8-9, 1942 After providing support for the landings on Guadalcanal, US carriers were withdrawn from the immediate vicinity, leaving cruisers and transports. A Japanese cruiser squadron slipped past Savo Island on the night of August 8-9th and sunk four American cruisers and escaped unharmed. A pacific version of the Atlantic map, would be even greater if Guadalcanal was more realistic. http://www.onwar.com/maps/wwii/pacific2/1savo42.htm

Good ideas, but personally I think that most people don't want more Pacific maps just because the Japanese, well, they suck as of 0.61, as well as BF1942 being thoroughly craptastical at producing jungle terrain. That could just be me.
