That sounds like a good argument for packaging "demo"
versions of games, but I'm not sure that breaking up
complete games into separate packages is a good idea.
It's a bit like breaking up a commercial game into 
episodic content and charging at the boundaries ("to
play this quest, please buy expansion pack zeta!"),
except I doubt our games would cope with the missing
resources in a good manner (most likely, crash when
a required resource is missing).
