Pick your poison:

Dead Space
Ravensword 2
Chaos Rings
Chaos Rings Omega
Chaos Rings 2
The World Ends With You
Demons' Score (purchase all Pacts)
The Walking Dead (all 5 chapters)
Summoner Wars (purchase all factions)
Neuroshima Hex (purchase all factions)

Also, if you just want to throw cash into a game, most Glu games have excellent production values, but have serious paywalls, and IAP which makes it expensive might just make the game enjoyable for you if you dont mind paying extra.

No mention of Carcassonne? ($10 + 2 IAP)

King of Dragon Pass
Starbase Orion
Ascendancy (grab it while it's on sale!)
Ascension (5 + all IAP)
I've had to slow way down on Pinball Acade, it's getting a bit expensive...
Minecraft PE
Atari / Activision / Vectrex collections (all free + IAP)

Baldur's Gate
Battle of the Bulge
Minecraft PE
Ascension (though I forgot how much that was, don't remember it being all that "expensive", though I guess with the DLC packs it is up there now)

That one game is why I want an iPad. Loved the original Baldur's Gate, even more than the second one. I loved just exploring the wilderness till they were all clear. Unfortunately it is the price of the iPad holding me back, not the price of the app.

Palm Heroes 2 is pretty awesome too; I purchased all the DLC maps.

I'm not sure...

...Walking Dead was great, been quite a few I've gotten that are around that price but I guess for arguments sake I'll go with it due to the lack of hesitation in doing it again if I had to.

TWEWY for me. Great production values and deep gameplay.

CHAOS rings (the 1st and omega) too.
