I don't know, here's a simple, easy one. Games that switch from the main play style into an on-the-rails style vehicle level.

Lego Star Wars, Gears of War 2, Kingdom Hearts, Ratchet & Clank Future : Tools Of Destruction (I went one more just for fun)

Games where you have the ability to fly, but only a little bit or for a very short while.

Game #3: Prince of Persia

New cliche: Hey, remember all those bosses you killed on the way to the final boss? Now you have to fight them all again before you can fight the final boss!

AKA Boss Rush... Mega Man, Space Harrier, and (uh...) Chrono Trigger.

The sequel is darker and edgier than the original.

What about Prince of Persia: The Warrior Within? They ramped up the blood & gore a bit and threw in that hard rock soundtrack. Didn't really care for the game myself but think it fits the bill.

Yeah this is probably the best answer. Would Grand Theft Auto III count?

I'd say Conkers Bad Fur Day is a much better fit

My turn or Fusions?

3. Sonic and Knuckles - the big stone statue in the pyramid level, you need to make it fall in the lava.

You have to move crates around to reach a height or get around something.

Bowser isn't immune to weapons. You can kill him with fireballs.

Prey, Blacksite: Area 51, Destroy All Humans, Duke Nukem 3D, X-Com

The main character doesn't make it (causing another character to assume the lead, or actual game ending - not Game Over)

1. CoD4 (although it could be argued whether that is the "main" character or not).

Would Castlevania II count? Simon dies in the normal and bad endings.

If there was a way you could beat the game and save his life, then I gotta go with no.

I remember the bad ending, it confused the hell out of me as a kid -- "I beat the game! Why is it saying it's a bad thing?"
