If you've got more additional suggestions than there is room for in the text box, leave a comment i guess :) Note that this poll is supposedly restricted to companies that are either actively pursuing evil ends, or are totally amoral but have done evil things (your opinion may vary) in pursuit of profit. (I admit that two or three of the companies in the list are at least a little borderline.)

The East India Trading Company was certainly named after the East India Company, just as Cyberdyne Inc. was almost certainly named for Cyberdyne Systems (though there's an interested role reversal there =) but having similar names and even being involved in similar stuff doesn't make them the same thing :)

I think you should've spelled out "Combine Honnete Ober Advancer Mercantiles". I don't think it would've hurt your response rate any ;-)

I like them because they sell me rocket tanks :-)

(am slightly disturbed that I haven't read those books in years and still almost entirely remembered the spelling)

I guess Shinra would be the second choice.

Now that I think about it a little more, GENOM is the one that comes to mind as having been left out. I want to say that Mass Effect must have had a corporation of dubious morality as well, but I don't remember what (I also, probably not coincidentally, didn't finish the game).

Hahah, after looking at which one's I could place and what the others were, I think this needed to have been titled 'How many of these have you heard of before AND REMEMBER' ;->

It's like, oh yeah, I've presumably heard of at least 4 more then I picked. But heck if I remembered them!
