Update 21 - 2 August 2017 - Mordor
Installed Ubuntu 16.04.02 from DVD, installed all updates, installed wine from repository.
Game installed fine, initial Akami installer agreement screen hid behind lotro screen, but was able to simply click on the other 'ring' logo in taskbar. Everything else went flawlessly during the installation. On first startup, lotro showed windowed, but was able to CTRL+O and change graphical settings. Did limited gameplay testing, but everything I tried worked.
What does not
What was not tested
Extensive gameplay. Lotro store. Battles/skirmishes.
It really was quite painless. Best/easiest experience installing lotro, or any other game with wine.
