If you're saying that Movie 1 is Action Genre and its sequel is Romance, that would be Genre Shift.

There'd be a lot of resistance against distinct tropes for specific "Genre X to Genre Y" moves. And in fact, you could make a case for a sequel having less romance (Disposable Love Interest).

I was thinking of a tendency of any movie deciding on going for romance for a sequel, mostly as the idea that the only way to add more drama to the story, it must be through a love interest.

Like Brother Bear, Despicable Me, Ice Age, The Princess Diaries, among others.

Relationship Upgrade for situations like the two characters with blatant Belligerent Sexual Tension in the first movie being an Official Couple in the second, no matter whether it's a romance or not.

Ninja'd by OP, second time in a month...: Followup info points to you wanting Romantic Plot Tumor; YMMV for a work adding a romance plot just to have one.
