Says to avoid static images and burn in isn't covered under warranties so to me it doesn't make any sense at all that there would be a GAME mode setting and even a GAME button switch on my Panasonic....that just seems illogical to me.

Not all games have static HUDs, in fact I'd venture that a typical cable network has more static content than many games. Regardless of what you're using the TV for the recommended burn-in avoidance measures (pillar bars, aspect ratio adjustments, mixing content, etc) are the same so the existence of a game mode (which is supposedly for input lag which my game-mode-lacking 2007 Panasonic has none of regardless) is in no way illogical.

FWIW, that 2007 Panasonic probably gets 50% of its use playing HUD filled Xbox games and most of the rest watching sports and other things with channel logos, scoreboards, etc and has no burn in.
