I think the word "romantic" is causing your problems with your thesis. It is hard to see how Of Mice and Men relates to the other two works in being romantic. However, all three works have tragic themes involving close relationships between two people. So maybe you could say: Although Romeo and Juliet, The Great Gatsby, and Of Mice and Men are different in their plots and settings, they all possess similar tragic themes involving close relationships between two people. You might also include the names of the respective authors in your thesis sentence: Although Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, etc. I hope this suggestion is helpful,
