Lure of the Temptress supports up to 10 games if I'm not mistaken

That is an issue indeed, but it's part of another task, namely adding international
language support to all ScummVM menus. There is a relevant patch for this, though
it seems noone has worked on it lately:

If such internationalization (is that a word?) is achieved, we could use the
appropriate non-English strings for the target language of each game version
(e.g. if a game's language is German, we could use the German strings of
the GMM). Alternatively, we could ask the engine itself to provide such strings,
though I don't know if this would make things more complicated...
