While not 100% aligned with this topic (fun + meaning), this video made me think of a number of the points you've raised, particularly where theme and plot (should) mesh to produce meaning and depth.

At 3:00, the discussion of 4-corner conflict might offer some ideas you'd appreciate.

"Each time, there is the same problem: do I dare? And then if you do dare, the dangers are there, and the help also, and the fulfillment or the fiasco. There's always the possibility of a fiasco. But there's also the possibility of bliss." - Joseph Campbell
