James, if you don't already know, the obvious workaround would be to run the
game in a virtual desktop.

I wonder if this is even a bug in wine at all. Age2 supports 3 resolutions, but
the main menu is hardcoded to run at 800x600 or even 640x480 (not sure right
now) and there is no way to change that (at least none that I know of).
If the graphics driver does not offer this resolution with your setup, there is
of course nothing wine can do about that. I don't know if there are any native
linux games this stubborn/unflexible about the resolution, but if there is one,
this would also fail, I think.

Not sure about Age 3, though... Since that is newer, you should be able to at
least configure the game to run at the same resolution as your display and it
should work. Can you check that?
