No that would not be strange.

First step: You can already formulate a bug report because you know that
Lintian should warn about missing desktop and menu files of packages in
section games. How this could be implemented is another question.

I would go for option 1. Besides if the Litian warning is only
informational there is no need to override the check. I also think it
makes sense that packages like bsdgames provide desktop files for every
console game. After all that's what the desktop key "Terminal=true" is for.
