While I agree that in general, long-lost relatives are a pretty clichéd plot device, I still wish that people would pay some notice to the fact that in Indy's case, the offspring type would be entirely justified. Consider:
He's not exactly a chaste hero. Knowing how nature works, it's actually pretty outlandish to not figure he's got a bastard or two hiding somewhere.
Okay, but if he does, why assume they're all the adventuring type, as well equipped to take on the danger as their dad, or at the very least hang in there? Well, first of all, screw realism. He lives in more of a caricatured world of adventure anyway, so anyone can be equipped to a degree.
But if you absolutely have to justify it, well... they've certainly got the genes. I mean, their moms are likely floozies Indy's come across over the course of his adventures, and they've survived those ordeals - some perhaps even thrived in them.
So yeah. Now, I can definitely hear the audience groaning if they just have one magically pop up and give some token line about mom being Willie Scott, blah blah blah... But if it's presented right, it could actually grow into a hilarious subversion of a character having his typical james bonding ways catching up with him.
