The Ichino-Ikeda conjecture, and its generalization to unitary groups by N. Harris, has given explicit formulas for central critical values of a large class of Rankin-Selberg tensor products. Although the conjecture is not proved in full generality, there has been considerable progress, especially for L-values of the form $L(1/2,\mathrm{BC}(\pi)\times\mathrm{BC}(\pi'))$, where $\pi$ and $\pi'$ are cohomological automorphic representations of unitary groups $U(V)$ and $U(V')$, respectively. Here $V$ and $V'$ are hermitian spaces over a CM field, $V$ of dimension $n$, $V'$ of codimension $1$ in $V$, and $\mathrm{BC}$ denotes the twisted base change to $\mathrm{GL}(n) \times \mathrm{GL}(n-1)$.
