I'm guessing that once the queen died, her family continued to reproduce and they inevitably left Japan and the family tree spread across the world which then led to Sam.

No, I don't think she should have. Making her the vessel would've come off as another way of highlighting how "special" Lara is, which seems like an overkill to me.

Because it would have subverted our expectations completely.

He could have had some japenese parentage way back in his past that even he was unaware of. And through this be a direct ancestor and so of the bloodline of Himiko.

And him being male would be explained by the fact that myths aren't always accurate.

With Sam there is no twist. With Lara.... she's already the centre of everything in that game, to have her as the vessel would have been too much for me.

With Alex... mild mannered, not mega in your face, seemingly insignificant, we have a bit of a twist.....
and Sam could have taken Alex's place in the game and vice versa...

I didn't look through the thread, so I don't know if this was mentioned, but your idea would've sounded similar to the GBC title, "Tomb Raider - Curse of the Sword". The general stories of the games are different, but the idea is the same.

I hadn't thought of that, but... yeah!
