Does anyone have any recommendations for a tool or GUI to facilitate 
creating nice looking tables in latex? I've tried a number of solutions 
  I found through Google, but none of them does everything I end up needing.

Simple tables are fine, but when I want linebreaks, lists, etc. in the 
cells, if I want to control orientation/alignment of contents per cell, 
it gets to messy to handle manually, with mulit-columns, parboxes and 
what not. Now I've resorted to create the tables in Word, export as PDF 
and insert as graphics.
