Actually I would favor "Broken Sword I & II" over "Broken Sword part I 
and II". But anyway isn't "the Broken Sword games" and "Broken Sword" 
easily distinguishable, so we do not need this anyway? Or do we have 
places where a simple "Broken Sword", means without the added "games", 
is used for both games?
