Synaptic and the hand of God

I recently discovered the wonders of "Synaptic" and I have a quick question regarding it:

How can I change the location that things are installed to?

I installed about 300pkgs using it, and they all ended up in the "others" folder.

Example: Link for tuxracer is in the "others" folder under the applications menu.

I want the tuxracer link in "games" instead. Is there an easy way to accomplish this while still being able to do mass installs and not have to sort through things manually?
