No, your idea about minwin and games was not bad at all, but I can't comment on proposals and ideas (for now).
Except, of course, for my deeply seated, almost primal, hatred for gradients
But gradients are very usefull, they show us in a very natural way on what we can click. By simulating a virtual "sunlight" that comes from above they are looking like real buttons.
But reflections on buttons on top of gradients are really a little bit too much, especially when the button text becomes hard to read.
