Nintendo Crossovers That Need to Happen

IGN: So in celebration of crossover fever (and in hopes that a cure isn't found anytime soon), here are a handful of Nintendo crossovers that just have to happen… as well as one that probably never should. And no, we're not talking the Super Smash Bros. character roster or yet another sports game - these are the crossovers we'd like to see in full-fledged adventures. Take a look, and don't forget to share your own dream match-ups in the comments section at the bottom of the page when you're done.

The article seems to miss the point of those other games entirely; what makes crossovers exciting is putting together properties from different (rival) companies... That's why Mario and Sonic at the Olympics is so popular.
For instance, mixing Metroid and Halo could be interesting, but I'd want something truly amazing, like Metroidvania! A Castlevania/Metroid hybrid whose franchises created an entire gaming genre, flung together in 2d glory. Samus would get sucked into a wormhole and emerge near a dead planet with one lone structure - Dracula's castle! Drac'd be harnessing Metroids to suck life out of the human survivors, and Metroid and a ghostly Belmont would take turns traversing the vampire planet...

How about a SquareEnix-made mash up of Zelda and Final Fantasy? Or a Dragon Quest/Mario adventure, with Bowser as a true dragon?

And why haven't there been Lego/Mario mash ups?
