I think we've all seen some good examples of this, where a story gets shoved along because publishers want to cash in on the money. Although sometimes the end product makes for a crappy story, or feels like the writers are dragging along a rotting corpse. The results aren't always positive. So here's my question. Would you continue writing a story - even though you yourself have decided to end it - because your producers or publishers care about the money? Or perhaps you care or need the money?
