This painfully British selection of "pies" is a travesty of a mockery, the list is practically a Paul McCartney lyric.  Truly sublime pie is a rare thing, more often it's some 'seasonal fruit' in a crust made with little love.  For a while I was digging the whole Key lime thing with its contrast of tart with creamy, but it lost something as it became mainstream, the death of any good pie (just look at lemon meringue).   I also don't see many really good pumpkin pies, usually they're too dense, over-spiced with clove and allspice, or baked too long.   If you ever come a cross a proper banana creme count your blessings.

I guess my favorite is the blackberry pie I make from the berries in my backyard, crushed with some sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon and dash of salt then baked in a simple crust.

I like that this isn't full of desert pies.  I don't care for those.  I make a mean shepherds pie once a year when everyone in the united states pretends to be irish for a day because some catholic nutter chased a bunch of imaginary snakes off of an island they were never on, or something like that.

American pies are variations on a European theme. Often these adaptions were created by substituting local ingredients for their European counterparts.
 
A lemon meringue is a tarte au citron with a meringue topping, a key lime pie is tarte au citron made with the wrong citrus fruit, all of which are just a baked custard tarts (and/or custard pies) with different flavourings, as is a pumpkin pie. Add cream cheese to the custard and you have a baked cheese cake. Substitute some other gelling agent instead of egg-yolk (e.g. gelatin or corn-starch) and you have another set of variants that often carry the same name as the egg-based version and some of which do not require baking to set them.
 
A shoo-fly pie is a treacle tart with a minor change in the ingredients, which in turn is a flap-jack made with bread crumb instead of rolled oats put in pastry shell. Swap the bread crumb for an indigenous nut and you have a pecan pie.
 
One pie that bucked this trend is the (sickly and practically inedible) banoffee pie, which is an English variation on an American recipe (Blum's coffee toffee pie).
 
Traditionally the pie crust was just a container for cooking the contents, it was not intended to be eaten. Nick Mason likes pies with no crust it would seem, though a crustless pie is really just a stew. Refinements in the paste used (which uses the same ingredients as pasta, hence they share the same etymological root) made it more edible than the basic flour and water paste, which led to thinner cases and the variations of top-crust and bottom-crust (ie a tart) pies that could be eaten with the contents, all of which makes tarts, flans, suet puddings, pasties and even potato toppings "pies".
 
Two very traditional British pies conspicuous by their absence from the list are Pork Pies (and other hot-water crust variants) and Homity pies.

Start your own American Pie Wink poll if you're not happy. 
 
From the list I would go 'Steak and Kidney'. 
 
Special mention for Yorkshire (Curd) Cheesecake not sure it counts as a pie though but its yummy.

Yey, you did it Andy.

I think flan is different here than the states.

I  think  a flan is similar to a tart but it has a sponge base?

Hmmm...can be pastry too. So  Flan is type of tart. In America it is custard or something I think.

Creme Caramel, what we call here ..Creme caramel
