I would start by removing the related metapackages (gnome, gnome-desktop-
environment, gnome-core...).

If removing tries to do crazy things (like deleting packages or libraries 
that you still want to leave installed), I would then go with a selective 
package removement. It will be slower but this way you ensure to keep the 
things you want and those that can be still needed or even useful for
