What sort of theory? If you mean theory of how to come up with a game concept and begin writing a design doc, have a look at my developer journal.

Game Design theory documentation seems a bit thin on the ground at the moment... The good books should start rolling out in the next few years as the design veterans start to retire. I'd enjoy a nice academic book by Peter Molineux a lot.

There are a few at amazon, kinda look a bit generic though. I get a little more disapointed each time I see the amount of watered down poop thats being published in the name of game development.
