Windows 7: Alternative to the Windows Explorer Games folder?

Alternative to the Windows Explorer Games folder?

(the attached screenshot is the Windows Explorer Games section I mean)

It's nice and it does the job, but is there a third party alternative? I guess I'd like some fullscreen thing that has the DVD case view like the Back Row theme for XBMC does (http://xbmc.org/wp-content/gallery/b...eenshot005.jpg) but for games, as the Microsoft one doesn't look too 'exciting'. Anyone know of anything that would suit my visual desire?
(yes, I know I can remove the preview pane and increase the icon size, but it's still rather dull)
(also, no, I don't want to just add all my non-Steam games to my Steam library as I find Steam sluggish and a pain)

are there any nicer looking programs, eg with coverflow?
The large icons suit your games, but they don't seem to suit mine :/

thanks for the tip on how to add games to it though
