I think that's due to solid compression option.
Since all those files in that archive are just different versions of the game, most data in them is the same, so it'll compress well.
Or that's what I think at least.

Yes, as non-native English speaker I know it's not that easy.

Indeed, this is why I love 7zip and RAR archives.

I'm not so enthralled with them, because Ark (for whatever reason) cannot extract a single file or a selection of files from a specific archive. It has to extract all of them at once, then I have to delete the files that I don't want so my ROM directories don't get clogged up with dozens of slight varients on the same ROM.

I think I just need a better extractor. Ark also has a charming way of batch extracting multiple archives. Select all of them, select "Extract with Ark...", and Ark proceeds to start a separate instance of itself for each archive I just selected. I once had to race to the terminal to execute a killall command before it could bring the entire system to a halt...

That's what you get for using KDE.

File Roller and X-archiver have no problems with pulling out one file at a time. It just takes forever because a lot has to be uncompressed to pull together the file's scattered data in a solid state archive.

More correctly, that's what I get for using Ark. I'll quite happily mix-and-match KDE, GNOME, Xfce, etc apps to get what works best. In this case, I just haven't bothered. I'll have to give those two a try at some point.

Mixed toolkits ... I don't know how the hell anyone can stand it.

It's like Linux of 1996 all over again.
