There is, if I'm not mistaken, the general understanding that more games will be made compatible as time goes on. Write the developers and Microsoft about the ones you want done. That seems like the way to do it to me.

Don't forget Battlefield 2: Modern Combat. I also don't see Battlefront 2 on that list.

Tiger Woods sucks. And a bad golfer as well.
