Define: good...

These come into my mind:

Drive on Moscow (until extra campaigns show up)
Lords of Waterdeep
Sonic 2 (remastered)
Tomb Raider 1 (depending on whether you have a controller or not)
Panzer Corps (again until extra campaigns show up)
Final Fantasy V

Statement: Star Wars has 2 characters with strange use of grammar: Yoda and HK-47. I pick HK-47 for it is meaner.

I couldn't even begin to list them. Look at past GoTY threads. You'll see the games that did well. Search them and you're bound to find that most of them don't have IAPs (this community generally likes the Premium route - with some exceptions).
Agreed 100%!
+1for that!
