There is "Games" position in "Tools" menu.
I'm not sure if it should belong to this menu.

It should be removed or accessible as something optional.

Another problem is that in "Tools" menu there are toggle type buttons such as:

- Project Support (EDE)
- Source Code Parsers (Semantic)

These options are not "tools". They do nothing functional. They are just 
turning some features on and off but have no immediate functional meaning.

Another problem is that we have more similar options to add ther and this could 
turn into an extensible and almost
unlimited list of external features available to turn on and off.

We could add positions such as:

- Code Browser
- Code Snippets
- Syntax Checking


Then we will get a long and hard to navigate list of toggle buttons which
belong to "Options" menu rather than to "Tools".

Another solution is to move this list to submenu.
For example:

"Tools" -> "Features >> "
