How do you think they should shake up the level themes?

A recurring complaint about some Mario game (specifically the New Super Mario Bros. sub-series) is that they just use the same Grassland, Desert, Beach, Ice, Snow, Mountain, Forest and Lava themes in their worlds and levels. How do you think they should change it up?

I'm thinking of a level, a Haunted Desert level, where it's dark and bleak, but also scorching hot, with quicksands that take you to dark underground areas filled with Boos and Peepas...

Cherries and Berries
I'm thinking that they should use ANY theme not named Grass, Desert, Ice, Beach, Lava, etc. I don't care what it is, as long as it's not those same, stupid, boring themes

Add space and haunted levels to that list.

I had an idea for a New Super Mario World a while ago. The worlds were something like:

1. Grassland/Coast
2. Jungle (more ruins and puzzles than NSMB)
3. Meadow (tons of flowers, like in YI)
4. Rocky Beach/Ocean
5. Icy Mountains
6. Caves (minecarts and crystals)
7. Canyon/Oil Refinery (the plot would be that Bowser has conquered Dinosaur Land and enslaved the Yoshis to find oil)
8.Lava/Dark

What about shaking up the story before the themes?

All of this sounds... Sonic the Hedgehogish... (Chemical Plant Zone, Casino Night Zone, etc.)

I would like to see a city level, cars, many other city things in it.
Overall NSMB themes are only based on natural scenes, and the problem is what the artificial places are for in Mario world?

In DK' factory, we simply know that the facilities were made by Kremlings/Tikis for thei plan (so for Eggman in Sonic games). Cities or factories which don't belong to Peach's kingdom or Bowser must belong to other administrative regions, like Diamond City or others in Paper games.

Unless it's like Isle Delfino intruded by Bowser's troop, and everyone had escaped or been hypnotized like DKCR did.

"...with my magic books i'll shower those clumsy lizards with my power
until dinosaur land is nothing but fossil fuel
my only problem with these spells is that i know not what they tell
so every hex leaves me perplexed and all i want are those plumbing fools..."

How do we know there aren't wastelands/casinos/cities...wait, we KNOW there are cities. Ever played Mario Kart?
For those sites in spinoffs, I guess Peach has to negotiate with the owners of the places since she's going to hold official tournaments. I don't think Mario and Bowser have to occupy Beijing and London before the Olympics start.

Or they have identical cities in the mushroom world and some of the cities such as Mushroom City are located in the Mushroom Kingdom.
