Well... he did. He wrote "Hunters of Dune" and "Sandworms of Dune," which supposedly complete his father's original intent for the story. However, that's very suspicious- because as soon as Brian took over, the story took off in a different direction, all the characters' personalities changed and intelligence dropped through the basement. Then I already mentioned he makes a character from his own prequels into the savior of the universe. Somehow I don't think it was in Frank's notes that the original ending of the story would glorify characters that his son would write 15 years after Frank's death.

I generally tell people to just stop after "Chapterhouse" and pretend the others never existed.

Hahaha, I'm trying to remember what you might be talking about.

How so formulaic?
