As mentioned WPA2 does work fine with the iPad for some routers - Apple's of course. I use WPA2 encryption at home on my Apple router with no problems, and with a linksys at my in-laws - sorry I don't have model/firmware version handy. Just my 2 cents.
As well, I have a couple guys at work with non-Apple routers using WPA2/AES and their ipads without any issues.

Well, this is what happened:
1) The iPad refuses to connect with WPA2/AES across any router.
2) The iPad connects flawlessly with any other or no security protocol.
3) Switching the router repeatedly between WPA/TKIP (which works well) and WPA2/AES will rarely allow the iPad to work with WPA2/AES.
4) Restarting the iPad, allowing it to go to full sleep (giving up the IP address), or "Forget[ting the] Network" will result in non-compliance with WPA2/AES.
5) At the Apple Store +every other iPad+ connected to my routers under WPA2/AES.
So obviously it's my iPad. I'm getting it replaced tomorrow.
Thanks for all your help and advice, everybody!

Thanks for the detailed update. Let us know things work out with the replacement.
A new iPad is now in my hands a week, and WPA2 / AES is connecting, re-connecting, and otherwise proceeding flawlessly. Lesson learned: If something is the only thing that isn't working, instead of trying to desperately fix it, kick it back and get a new one!
i just found that my network time server was down, so my router time was incorrect.
so just picking the next 2 on the list gave me correct router time and my ipad connected immediately.
using AES, as i always have before.
