Genres – such as Romance, Historical or SF – can either be used strictly (only for knowing fans of the genre) or utilized as elements in more mainstream literary stories (for instance, crime is used a lot).
Or mix and match genres to be more modern – try a Thriller with Family Saga; Romance with Gritty Realism. Some like SF have large genre elements to make them more generally interesting, like Romance, Military etc (Star Trek has many of these).
