TTAM #4: Can I please pause the fucking game?

Sorry for you kiddies out there, but this really pisses me off. I am playing Tiger Woods 08, I need to restart a match, and it WILL NOT LET ME PAUSE THE FUCKING GAME. Hello, when was the last time you pressed the -- dedicated button might I remind you -- start button on the controller and it DID NOT pause the game? In Tiger Woods 08, that's when!

It doesn't matter if you are up to hit, or your opponent is, you cannot pause the game at any time to hit Retry. You have to wait until your/your opponents animation is over (even if you hit A to skip it), and wait until the golfer addresses the ball, only then can you pause the game.

Developers, please, the Start button on every controller is known for two things: it pauses the game, and usually brings up some kind of menu. It is an ingenious concept, really. One that has been ingrained in gamers minds for over 20 years now.

There is no conceivable reason to NOT be able to pause the game at any time in Tiger Woods 08, or any other game for that matter.

The hardware button is there for a reason, please do us all a favor and use it as such.
