Wouldn't memory protection detect such bad failures? There are also silent bugs that won't get noticed without memory protection while they would with the protection. One example is a bug altering some code somewhere. Very bad, but undetectable without memory protection until that code gets executed.

Depends on the engine. Unity3D allows you to do just about anything. It gives you a bunch of systems that you can tie together how you see fit. Certainly a reasonable way to make certain kinds of software, unless you want to write everything from scratch. On the Amiga that can be interesting, on the peecee it may be an annoyance.
