Are the days of the major 20-30 hr. expansion gone?

I usually wait to buy most games about a year or two after launch, when they are on sale via Steam below $10 including all DLC. If they include several short 3-5 hour DLC, I suppose the complete version with all the DLC is comparable to an expansion in terms of additional content.
The sort of DLC that I'm inclined to buy at full price would be something that significantly enhances the replay value of the game by expanding on the base gameplay features. Skyrim's Dawnguard, for example, which adds new joinable factions, new skill trees and is a basis for a number of interesting mods, not to mention quite a lot of content. If it makes the game worth playing through again, that is another hundred hours or so.
