GURPS Campaign Generation
Randomly select two books from your shelves, combine them (somehow) to make your campaign setting.

Great fun if you happen to have a stack of Gurps sourcebooks.  Hmmm, Arabian Nights meets Black Ops? or Cyberpunk meets Bunnies & Burrows!?

IOU and anything.

I think SJ Games ran an event like this, but they had two sourcebooks + 1 adventure that the GM had to combine.

Qualities to avoid?  This is my group's go-to quality! Wink  We often have unironic fantasy type characters and missions in modern spy games [vice versa too], which makes me chuckle inside.
But have the entire settings been using tropes from another genre?  I'm not talking about playing one or two fantasy characters in an otherwise usual Spycraft game, I mean playing the entire setting of a Modern Spycraft game the same way you would play a "standard" fantasy game.

Isn't this "Wraith Recon"?

Yeah, that's a good example.  (Though personally I prefer mixtures that seem less plausible, such as playing in a modern setting like it's D&D.)

Like Dragonstar or, if I recall correctly, X-Crawl.

Both solid examples. Although, you could easily add on the Fragile Minds from SC2.0 to get shows X-Files and sounds like Fringe too.

X-Crawl sounds like the sort of thing you would get if the Variance Analysis Office called it quits in the 60's, took the information, and set up a few colleges...
