Of course as most games bang the hardware. The ST emu on Amigas just emulate the atari ROM or patch the ROMs to redirect input/gfx/sounds/disk.
that's why A-Max/Shapeshifter/Fusion emulators work so well on mac apps because they don't hardware bang.
Using properly the MMU, it is theorically possible to emulate the atari hardware on an amiga. But I don't think it has already been done.
