Obviously though because of TOR we wouldn't find Revan, we'd run into certain 'obstacles' preventing us from getting to him but we would eventually learn where and how a couple of hundred years later.

I'm curious about loose ends to be tied up from TSL. If I'm not mistaken, M4-78 didn't have much content, no thanks to uncle george making TSL a rushjob.
I'm still curious about Bao Dur's fate, and how it related to HK-47 getting to Malachor V. Did he survive the fight at Telos or not? Wasn't he also supposed to have been able to learn higher lightsaber forms from the Exile because he'd possibly need them?
Also HK-47's actions and whereabouts
is only referred to in the Revan novel but not actually explained.
We've known Nihilus had a holocron, possibly implying more followers than Visas Marr.
One character you fight in SWTFU learned from it.
Most of the TSL companion characters not talked about in the Revan novel.
That's everybody who did not appear in K1. Atton, Michal, Brianna, Mira, Bao-Dur, Hanharr.
The only purely TSL character in there was
Atris. I'm interested to see what became of her, too.
Also, the situation was economically dire, on the verge of collapse in TSL. I'd imagine it'd be a slow recovery and plenty of time, opportunity and such for other criminal elements to attempt to strike. Genohardan, Exchange, Hutts, bankers, the anti-competitive Czerka corporation.
So plenty of bad guys, some lingering pockets of sith followers, and the stories of the characters.

A proper KOTOR III, in my opinion, would be one that does not overwrite the Revan novel, but one that would compliment it. It could follow Meetra (the Exile) from the very start of the story, beginning with the end of The Sith Lords, with the search for Revan being the main theme, and eventually catch up to where her part in the novel begins and take us through the same events for the remainder of the game, all from Meetra's perspective.
I'm not so sure it wouldn't become a jumbled cluster-**** like Fatal Alliance and SW:TPM both seem to suffer from--that is to say a lack of a central character. While a K3 could include parts (or all) of the Revan Novel, the only thing that would make it a good complimentary story is if the Republic were...well...deceived. Some of the intrigues like what the archivist referred to in the timeline films would need to be in play.
