Really not sure why these are separate.

Its not like G&K is playable without the main game.

Expansions are generally treated as separate games on this site. While it is true that Gods & Kings is unplayable without the main game, precedent set by other games and expansions suggests that Gods & Kings needs its own page. See for example the World of Warcraft expansions, the Oblivion expansions or the Civ IV ones.

EDIT: While not set in stone (I think), rule of thumb for DLC/expansions is if it's released as a retail disc it gets its own page.

we really need a definite ruleset for these kinds of things. there's so much confusion out here and pages created or not created because of it.

Expansions get their own page.

It's not like this is a 10$ COD mappack.

This is a full fleshed 30$ expansion.

That is correct. That's why the Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam expansion page got deleted while the old Battlefield 1942 expansion pages still exist (for example).

If Gods and Kings has a retail disc version, then it should stay, otherwise merge and delete it.

Expansions of this size get their own page I believe.

Expansion packs and DLC released on retail discs get their own pages. Also once a wiki page has had staff content attached to it, as this is page is, it is no longer open to deletion.
