Now that I have gotten acquainted with GNOME as my desktop environment, I removed / installed and adjusted it to my liking.

After I installed the Arc Dark theme and the Moka icons, I changed the default setup..
What was removed : pidgin / bijiben / cmake / gnome-font-viewer / orca / seahorse / tracker-needle / pamac / gnome-music
What was installed : tlp / Polari / Rhythmbox with the Alternative Toolbar plugin from the AUR / Terminix
GNOME Extensions enabled : TopIcons / Activities Configurator / Arch Linux Updates Indicator / Drop Down Terminal
