Thats because FPSs are generally the most flexible for editing :)

FPS engines are in general more powerful than other engines for the needs of most games. So starting from one of those makes a kind of sense whatever your doing. You may have to unlock camera angles to build a flightsim, and tweaking the physics is almost certain to be needed for anything other than another FPS, but given time you should be able to do anything.

I saw an RTS built on Quake even before the source was released. And there was a pinball game built on the Unreal engine.

Unreal engine is super-moddable as its core files are .u so that people can mess with them..
