Hrm in terms of particular genres? Not sure, there are some genre differences in basic ideas of HOW the plot works, but that depends on the writer too.
For example, there's a distinctive difference between sci-fi and fantasy, they're often mistaken for two forms of the same thing but there's one major difference: In sci-fi, yeu explain HOW things work and WHY stuff happens, with additional emphasis on the reasoning behind it. Fantasy just goes "oh that? Uhm... it's magic", and then doesn't bother to define magic.
