RE: A couple of questions relating to BTTF The Game
Oh, yes; I'd somehow forgotten about that. He got several negative mental patterns from Emmett by releasing the smelly gas of a bacteria tank, flipping on certain pictures that provoked a bad reaction and doing other things that created the worst possible mind map for him.
I appreciate the question-- pretty much, the intent was to write veiled references by the filmmakers, within the plot, in acknowledgment or honor of another film or TV show. It can be a fine line. "Darth Vader" and "planet Vulcan" are obvious references by Marty to Star Wars and Star Trek, but not really an homage from Bob Gale. The same can be said of clips from Cheers and Miami Vice on the video screens of the Cafe 80s. Probably, a new page could be made as a counterpart to List of references to Back to the Future, perhaps a "List of references from Back to the Future" to include the many passing mentions of famous persons or things.

- We do have a page that's the opposite of List of references to Back to the Future ... it's called Homage, and the two pages link to each other. Western Union (talk) 06:24, March 30, 2013 (UTC
- In this case, I was actually responding to a question on my talk page about the Homage page;. As the term is used in filmmaking, there's a difference between an homage ("usually a respectful tribute to someone or something; this often occurs within one movie when a reference is made to another film's scene, image, etc." ) [http://www.filmsite.org/filmterms10.html] , which is more narrow than a reference (from the same site, "refers to how one film in its storyline (through dialogue, images) alludes to, recalls, or refers to another film; similar to homage".) All homages are references, but not all references are homages. There are several occasions where Bob Gale and Neil Canton specifically refer to an homage, and usually it's an allusion within their film to a favorite film. A good example of the fine line might be the TV sets in the Cafe 80s. Clips of Oprah Winfrey and Miami Vice are not homages to those shows; they're examples of 1980s shows that the Cafe 80s owner has included in the display. On the other hand, the inclusion of Family Ties and Taxi would, arguably,qualify as a filmmakers' homage to other work by Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd Another example of the difference might be A Fistful of Dollars. In Part II, a reference is made to it;; Biff happens to be watching; it and it doesn't come up again during the film. In Part III an homage is made to the film, as Marty flips back his poncho to reveal his makeshift vest I just don't want to see the Homage page turn into a dust magnet like the References to BTTF page.

Re. Input on Lincoln
In answer to your question, I suppose Abraham Lincoln being seen on a $5 bill in Doc's money suitcase in Back to the Future Part II would count as an appearance, just as much as that of Goldie Wilson II on the promotional re-election posters seen in 2015 in that same movie.
But then, you can bet your bottom dollar (if you'll pardon the pun) that someone somewhere will have a different opinion on this. :-)
