Well when we say 'that's a million dollar question' it's not just an important question but THE most pertinent question. The question that begs for an answer. The question that represents the highest curiosity. This means a very difficult question to find the answer for and a question so difficult that whoever answers it gets a million dollars.
The very important question is...the ultimate question, the big question.
"what's the meaning of life?"
million dollar question
- an important but difficult question
The million dollar question is whether we should buy a new computer or not.
I think, there´s another aspect, the one of some troubling/unsolved past mess/misdeed in the past that haunts sombebody:
The troubling question is...
The problem that always will come back to haunt you...
The disturbing worry is...
The problem that continues insolvable/unsolved is...
Let´s wait further comments to improve that.
