That indeed will work, but then you don't know if the user wanted to go 
back to the game/util/app, or they want to go to the main menu. You'd 
need to hold a button or a key to go to main menu, or you need to hold a 
button or key to go to the game

I also hate to waste EEPROM or FLASH for such a use.
