Writing/concept challenge; Could you do better?

Just a random idea for a creative thread.
So many times I am looking at a film plot, or a videogame plot, and thinking "ah...this is so cliche". So many ideas done again and again and I am always thinking "I could do better!".....but could I?

could.....you? [points at audience]

So, the idea is people in the thread issue challenges that our basically
"What would you do if you had to make the next X in the Y franchise?"

So, your being forced to make sequel to a game/book/film/any piece of art.....how would you do it? Could you do better then the real IP owners?
Just write a short summery as to how youd handle it. Rough plothock/ideas.

Heres a few to get the ball rolling;

"What would you do if you had to make a sequel to Little Big Adventure 2?"

"What would you do if you had to make the next Star Trek film?"

"What would you do if you had to make the next James Bond film?"

Take your pick.

(no need to wait for a reply before submitting your own challenge though, keep this informal/free-flowing. Feel free to issue challenges for things that really shouldn't have sequels either - trying to make a turd good is fun too!)

Niiiiiiiiiice idea.

However I can only think of how I could do better for already existing franchises which frustrated me, not for a new sequel that doesn't exist.

And for one, the one that pops into my mind right now, I'd have made the whole 1,2,3 prequels of Star Wars differently, starting by not having someone as old as Padmé marrying Anakin, whom she met as a young little boy while she was already an adult, such a major plot hole.

Then also in the trilogy The Gods Must Be Crazy the third film was complete crap and an insult to intelligence and whereas I could not have done better I'd say it'd been better off they didn't make it at all, because it was a pity to ruin such an amazing sequence of movies.
A few years ago, under the guise of protecting the population, Dr. FunFrock herded the planet's habitants into the southern hemisphere. The repression is harsh. Every day brings more and more arrests, and the people slowly begin to lose hope. In an effort to keep their spirits up, the people sometimes evoke an ancient legend along with the name of a goddess, Sendell. The mentioning of the legend or Sendell has since been forbidden by Dr. FunFrock. Meanwhile... a young quetch named Twinsen has been having strange dreams...

I might be able to come up with something cool if I ever stop to think about it, but I'm too lazy to do so
