I know the various expansion arcs are incompatible. However, is this also true of the robot? What I mean is this: are Alien Artifacts and Xeno Invasion solo playable using the solo play robot from GS?

The AA rulebook makes no mention of solitaire games with the TGS robot opponent, so I'm going to say no. And if the arcs themselves aren't meant to be cross-played, I'm assuming that would hold for the other aspects too.

OTOH, you may be able to find a player created variant. In addition to any issues in balance, there would need to be definitions for whenever the robot face was rolled, as that always had special instructions depending on the robot's homeworld.

No, the robot was designed solely for arc 1.

Player-created variants surely exist, check the AA variants forum.

Looks interesting.
What's the feedback with it? Does it work well?

It's totally worth the $3 it will cost to print on card stock, but I'd love to hear from those who've played.
