A connected question about the SWU:
Do droids dream of electric tauntauns?

FTFY

Come to think of it, why does a killing-machine need money in the first place?

Why does a vending machine need money to give me a snickers?

It doesn’t. BIG SNACK needs your money. The vending machine is a false flag.

We heard about battle droids killing the people of Naboo in TPM, but we never saw the casualties Padme’s advisors kept talking about. We don’t hear about or see innocent people caught in any battles in the rest of the prequels, although The Clone Wars does deal with this. So, some people could have developed a hatred of all droids from that.

The prequel battle droids not looking like IG-88 was a missed opportunity.

Well, the first Clone Wars TV series did have these guys; http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/IG_lancer_combat_droid
(Having read through the wookieepedia articles for the IG series it seems that the EU guys agree with you. A lot of PT droids were retconned as being IG droids.)

This is a ultra-fantastic idea. Why didn’t they do that!? That would have made so much sense… IG88 being a leftover droid.

The Clone Wars CG animated series had these droids in several episodes as well, mostly portraying them as specialized for assassination, so that is probably the direction canon is leaning now. Even so, a retcon that even just has specialized IG88 assassination legions (terror/kill squads) would not only be plausible, but a strong idea.

Ideally someone gets some IG88 Maya models or something and recomposites droid battle scenes from the prequels to feature a few or even all IG88s -_^
