	Why not use xrandr to switch resolution to 800x600 before running the game 
and back to 1600x900 after you're done playing? It can be easily automated: you 
can create shell script for that. First, run "xrandr" to make sure that you 
have 800x600 available, then run "man xrandr" for relatively short manual how 
to use it.
	For example, if your favorite editor is nano, run:
sudo nano /usr/local/bin/starcraft
...and put the following into it:

xrandr -s 800x600 -r 60
cd /to/the/directory/where/StarCraft.exe/is/located
WINEDEBUG=-all wine StarCraft.exe
xrandr -s 1600x900 -r 60

	Of course, edit the path appropriately. Than run:

sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/starcraft

	Now you can run your game just by running "starcraft". Of course, you need 
to set your window manager to position virtual desktop window at 0,0 (top left 
corner of the screen) and show it without border. In KDE you can do this by 
running your game in virtual desktop and then in its Window Menu click
Advanced -> Special Window Settings. I do not know how to do this in non-KDE
