I've read in the past that some mirrors refused to mirror certain apps due to size, but the major bulk, mirrors everything.
Looking at synaptic, there are currently 7 game packages raging from 189MiBs(Warsow) to 338MiBs(Nexuiz) int the intrepid rep.

From a user POV I see no problem with having them in the reps, but I do agree with some mirror-admins, that those packages have usually really low usage but make lots of bw if they need to be rsync many times.

If everything else fails, you may ask LP admin if you can have it initially on a PPA (i dont know the quota limit on PPAs, sorry), and if it can handle safely, then ask Ubuntu reps to store it.

ps. My emails tend to sound authority and aggressive. I'm sorry in advance. I'll try to be more assertive as time goes by...
