Some comments with respect to this list.

With expansions it all depends on how we enter them in the database. Sometimes they are thrown in with the game and sometimes a new entry in the database is made for it. In the first case it will not end up in the list in the second case it will. This is why you see some and some not in the list.
My personal opinion is that expansions should not be contenders for GotY.
That said, I do wonder if a game like Siege of Dragonspear is an expansion in the usual sense.

Another reason why some games are in the list that might not qualify as an RPG, is because an editor added them in the database, in order to post news about that game.
