You can create your own iso and include the packages you want.
Packages from AUR won't be included in the official iso and I don't
think games are necessary.

There are also space constraints:
- iotop needs python and it's a rather big package.
- gptfdisk needs icu, another big package.

top is included (procps package), so htop is not absolutely necessary
