Jurassic-Com!

The aliens decide to turn all of Earth into a galactic dinosaur theme park where extraterrestrial visitors can see and appreciate giant lizards. Your job is to help mankind survive both dinosaurs and the aliens ;)

I thought it would be: the alien lizards decide to turn all of Earth into a human theme park where extraterrestrial visitors can see and appreciate homo sapiens in their daily struggle with depression, tiredness, and identity crisis. Your job is to open the damn electric gate and shoot every tourist dead!

Complete with reverse terror missions where you fight against the alien lizard security teams while hunting down the tourists!

Yeah, that's most of the game, at least until your alien overlords send in special forces.
Shooting hapless tourists is more of a bonus.

XCom meets Hotline Miami. One squaddie has to clear the entire ufo in a bloodsoaked panic.

X-Com meets any zombie apocalypse movie: you do terror missions in which the zombified civilians turn other civilians into zombies and your job is to shoot the civilians who are still okay before they turn into zombies.

This could be an X-Com/Warcraft 3 crossover.

In the opposite direction to the usual one...

Darkest Dungeon and XCOM.

If such a mod existed, I would certainly use the soundtrack for general gameplay.

Not gonna lie, in the right themed mod a midi of the theme would be a great GMDEFEND replacement. In any mod it'd be a great GMDEFEND replacement.
