Wouldn't it be better if Dungeon Command was a game instead of a family and Sting of Lolth an expansion? I find the current organization a bit illogical.

I've already brought this up.

Some people think it makes sense.

It's actually very logical but impractical. Your suggestion would make it more practical but illogical.

Oops, I missed that post blush

You're right in that post.

If at least there was a "base" Dungeon Command game entry to which the expansion packs were linked...

Actually, I don't see the logic. Dungeon Command is a game, isn't it?

The problem is that there is no physical product linked to the name "Dungeon Command" so putting it up as a game family is logical but it becomes impractical because BGG's family/game integration is not as complete as its game/expansion integration.

Ok. But many customizable games share this characteristic (no "base" game). E.g. WH40K is not a family, but a game. There is a "Warhammer 40,000 Wargames" family, though.

In that example, Warhammer 40K refers to the physical core rule set (3rd ed, 6th ed, etc) sold as a book but WH40K Wargames is just a family of games grouped by the theme.

Another game similar to Dungeon Command's distribution would be Summoner Wars but in that case, BGG incorrectly has a "Summoner War" game entry linked to "Summoner Wars: Guild Dwarves vs Cave Goblins" but it works much better vs the situation with Dungeon Command.

I agree with the OP, and yeah, I know the issue has been brought up before.

The current arrangement is silly. If I want to read a review of Dungeon Command, which of the five database entries do I go to? If I want to see how Dungeon Command is rated, which of the five ratings do I look at?

+1 it's really tough to read up on rule clarification, etc. when it's all over the place. and somehow the family board is a ghost town mostly?
