Perfect Dark: Zero
Perfect Dark was a game that melded the fun of Goldeneye with a female protagonist and a lot of silly humor mixed in the game.
It's believed that Perfect Dark: Zero only made its success because it was a launch title with hardly any FPS competition at the time. The graphics were terrible, the AI was awful and the story was as bland as a rice cake.
It was a complete opposite of what made the original so much fun and played on its popularity to sell Perfect Dark: Zero. Of course, that stopped when people realized just how crappy it was.
