Can a game without a theme be successful? Any recent examples?

By theme I mean having any setting, characters, story etc. For example a game without a theme would be something like Tetris. Are there any recent games without a theme that have been successful? What did they have to do to stand out?

I don't have any examples but I think so as long as it has good marketing, good gameplay and is appealing.

Hope that helped.
