I tend to have two games on the go at once for just that reason.|
if my wife heads to bed relatively early, I know I can happily get 2-3 hours gaming in, so tend to play something relatively substantial (currently Arkham City, which I'd agree has lots of 'optional' stuff, rather than padding, although I'm not enjoying it as much as the first game as it's not quite so tightly focused, partially as a result of the optional stuff).
If I've got half hour before bed / a long lunch break, I'll always play something more pick up & play, currently Forza Horizon.
Of course, the problem then comes when I find the quick game of Peggle I started for 10 minutes before bed is still going on at half past midnight...
