I'd guess it's the same impulse that make fans of historical fiction want to read a good story about well-known historical figures and well-known historical events. The dramatization of things already known has its pleasures. ROME, I, CLAUDIUS, GETTYSBURG, BECKET...

Admittedly, the best of them tend to find some interesting and unique lens through which to show these stories (as ROME did, through the eyes of two common soldiers). Maybe seeing the rebellion from inside Ned's head or Robert's isn't really going to be that interesting. But, I don't know, the rebellion as seen through the eyes of the Mad King and Howland Reed might be an interesting reading experience. Whether it'd be an interesting enough writing experience is, of course, something else entirely.

(That said, I'm not especially interested in the idea of a Robert's Rebellion prequel. A short film about the tourney at Harrenhal, OTOH...)
