I have a large games room that is half carpet and half tile. I am installing baseboards all around the room. I do not want to use shoe molding on the carpeted area. Is it acceptable practice to install shoe molding only on the tiled area?

Yes, if baseshoe is needed, that is the preferred method.

Either make a return on the shoe where it meets the carpet or bevel it down a little. Just makes for a better looking install.

About the only time I see shoe mould over carpet is when there is a gap between the base and carpet. Standard procedure is to use shoe mould over vinyl or tile and not over carpet.
