Design Flaw in DS

I find that there is one key design flaw in the nintendo DS and it's the
location of the power button. I play Madden 2005 DS and I've hit the power
button several times during play. IMHO having the power button right above
the directional pad is not good. A location similar to that of the Gameboy
advance would have been fine.

But I still love my DS and wish I could use it with my Gamecube to play
Final Fantasy with my kids.

Haven't accidently turned the DS's power off (yet), but --- how is Madden
2005 DS?

It's good. Way better then the one for the Gameboy Advance.

Didn't care too much for GBA Madden 2004. Bought it at full retail ($30),
so now am a little hesitant about Madden on a handheld.
