Model rendering, animation/physics, error checking/logging, perhaps level loading.

You may also want an interface to a scripting language.

Networking! Input (obviously). Sound, music.

Of course, a really good game-specific engine would have more than just these individual components (which can be found in pretty much any engine). It should work to make the game logic sections of your code as abstract as possible.
