* The UK edition of ''A Storm Of Swords'' was split into two volumes, ''Steel and Snow'' and ''Blood and Gold'' (661 and 637 pages in paperback, including appendices). The French edition split it into ''four'' volumes - and, in fact, the French translations of all the ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' books were split into at least two volumes. And again in the UK with the A Dance With Dragons paperback, split into ''Dreams and Dust'' and ''After the Feast''. This happened in the American series as well, as''A Feast for Crows'' came into being accidentally, originally intended to be ''A Dance with Dragons''. However, ''Dance'' was too large in whatever form it was in at the time, so George R.R. Martin split it into two books based on character [=POV=] groupings as opposed to chronology. Fans have since crafted reading lists that allow readers to follow the books' plots in chronological order just like the rest of the series.

* Books three and four of the ''Literature/{{Rihannsu}}'' series were originally meant to be one volume, but ExecutiveMeddling forced ''Swordhunt'' to be split in two, creating ''Honor Blade'', with the chapter numbers starting at six. The ''Rihannsu: The Bloodwing Voyages'' {{omnibus}} merges them back together.

* In the Literature/DoctorWhoNovelisations, the very long TV story "The Daleks' Master Plan" was split into two books. "The Trial of a Time Lord" was split into four books, but it had been originally produced as four separate TV stories and comes across more as a season with an unusually strong SeasonArc than as a single story.

* The danger of this is highlighted withe the ''Film/{{Divergent}}'' franchise. The third novel, ''Allegiant'' was divided into two films, ''Allegiant'' and ''Ascendant''. The first part did so poorly that plans for the conclusion were scrapped with the idea of concluding it as a TV Movie.

* The film adaptation of ''[[Film/HarryPotter Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows]]'' was split into two parts, as the plot is very dense and the filmmakers decided that splitting it into two movies is a better choice than compressing the story. Also, before production of ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'', the producers considered splitting it into two movies, but decided against it. Consequentially, a few subplots had to be cut out for time.

* SimpleMinds recorded many songs for Sons And Fascination, and liked so many that they couldn't fit them all onto one album (optimum space for a vinyl LP is about 22 minutes per side). They initially were going to put out Sons And Fascination as a double album, but decided that might make people think they were a pretentious prog rock group rather than the new wave band they wanted to be. Instead, they released the second half as a separate album called Sister Feelings Call. This was originally shrinkwrapped with Sons And Fascination, and later sold as a budget release. Both albums are available on one CD and are now considered by the band to be one album again simply titled Sons And Fascination/Sister Feelings Call.
