I suppose this is more a UI thing. The pattern is checked, if it is satisfied,
i.e. all requirements are fulfilled. AFAIK games just requires pattern x11,
everything else is just recommended.

So it is likely the games pattern is almost always checked, as it does not
require a single game. Vice versa, if the pattern is not checked, it does not
prove there is no game installed. This would be the case IFF the pattern
actually required all game packages.

(In reply to comment #2 from Stephan Kulow)
requires kde4-kpat and extends games. So once you deinstall kde4-kpat, games
should no longer be marked.

If the UI actually evaluates 'satisfied', extends has no influence, as it is
not known to the solver. Extends is a pure UI attribute.

The pattens includes/extends attribute has an impact on the amount of packages
shown in the 'content' list, but not on the patterns dependencies.

To me this looks like a a duplicate of bug #438179.
