Goldfinger? The pre-title sequence to that one is about Bond stopping a heroin smuggling ring in Latin America. The only bridge between the two stories is that Bond is then sent on holiday to Miami.
In Indy though:
Raiders - pre-adventure is about golden idol. Connection to main story is Belloq.
TOD - Pre-adventure is about the Peacock's Eye diamond. Connection to main story is Willie and Shortround
LC - Pre-adventure is about Indy first discovering the Cross of Coronado in 1912, then finally recovering it in 1938. No connection to main story except for a cameo by an unseen Henry Sr.
KOTCS breaks with this in that we don't even SEE the pre-adventure, it's only mentioned. It feels off.
