It's because your base game is installed through steam. Steam is a hassle to add things to that aren't originally bought through steam. (Plus, being a pirated copy, there's no CD key to apply to steam). So if you want those games, I'd recommend just downloading them all. Or get the CD key for the ones you have through Steam, and activate them using Origin and download them that way.

Also. Please keep all of your issues/questions regarding the same computer, and especially the same installation, in the same topic, unless it gets closed, or hijacked by somebody.
