Are there any other XBLA games that have been "de-listed"?

Jeff and Ryan referenced playing Yaris on the last bombcast, which got me thinking. Well, not about attempting to play the game. Luckily I purchased my Xbox 360 quite a few months after this game was removed from XBLA, so I didn't have a chance to "experience the magic", but I remembered a story from about a year and a half ago that came from Microsoft. They had mentioned that games whose sales/community was considered sparse & whose Metacritic score was not up to par, were to be given a six-month window or something, lest they be removed from XBLA.
But the only game that I can think of that fits this description is, well Yaris. Do you guys know if anything other games got the boot?

According to this list, other delisted games include Double Dragon, EA's 2009 NFL fantasy football/draft tracking games, Lost Cities*, and Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe. 
Quite the motley crew.
* (According to GB's wiki page on Lost Cities, it was removed due to licensing issues following the Activision Blizzard merge.)
