Virtual Pool 3 with Jeanette Lee for the PC is awesome. I highly recommend it and it's price ($19.99 or less I think). Let me just say from an inside point of view... it's a good game.

I have Q-Ball: Billiards Master for the PS2. It is really good (about as good as a pool game can be for a console)

The pool mini-games in Super Monkey Ball 1 & 2 are pretty good, and are actually fairly realistic (other than they're being monkeys in the balls and no pool stick, you just line up the shot and the monkey in the cue ball makes it move.) The physics are pretty realistic.

SMB only has 9 ball, I believe SMB2 has 9 ball and 8 ball, but I haven't played it.

It might not be what you're looking for if you want a straight up hard core pool sim, but they're pretty decent, and you get a bunch of other awesome gameplay in addition to the pool.

I have Virtual Pool 2 and 3 and both of those games are very good and very realistic. These games really do improve pool playing.
