Haven't used this version yet, but..
Linux mint 7 main edition
apt search gnome-games
p gnome-games - games for the GNOME desktop
p gnome-games-data - data files for the GNOME games
p gnome-games-extra-data - games for the GNOME desktop (extra artwork
Try a reinstall of those entries (Gnome-games, Gnome-games-data, Gnome-games-extra-data)
In terminal, check
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install Gnome-games
--what is the result ?
The applications list should be in /usr/share/applications
--including the desktop files
You could also try re-adding the mintmenu right-click Gnome panel>Add to panel>Mintmenu
--as well as the familiar reload plugins right-click Mint menu icon>Reload plugins
