Popular themes for games

I was wondering what this community thought were some good themes like the ones seen in Doodle Jump and such. Any ideas? western, underwater, jungle, space, etc.

Thanks!

Lol, I think he was asking for more suggestions, not a preference.

Themes can be virtually anything. Some of the themes that I came up with in Snails (PocketPC/Windows Mobile/iPhone) can be seen at my site:

I think there were a total of 15 different levels, each with a different theme.

This image actually combines 4 different themes into a single scene: http://devastation3.com/content/illu...world_2048.png

The themes for Snails included:
Barnyard
Underwater shipwreck
Central Park (snowy, at night)
Jungle
Jungle Ruins
Egyptian Sphynx
Grannies living room
Gingerbread ghetto (christmas theme)
junkyard
Sewer (pipes)
Taj Mahal
Great Wall of China
Village
Space Station
Meteors (space)
