I wish there was a 16-bit RISC CPU that competed in price with the 65816. I think a RISC architecture with 8 16-bit registers and both a 16 bit data and address bus would've been pretty close to the 65816 in price. If you think about, the 65816 actually has 15 8-bit registers, just not arranged in the most orthogonal way.

Look into the MSP430.

Admittedly, I don't think it ever saw a version that can operate from external memory, so it's pretty strictly a microcontroller instead of microprocessor.
