OS on SSD and Data on HDD

Ubuntu installed on the SSD should be able to access the games on the HDD OK. You can also put your Ubuntu "/home" partition on the HDD to save SSD space.

During the install when partitioning use "Something else". create your "/" root partition on the SSD and your "/home" partition on the HDD.

Alternatively you can install to the SSD and then create a "/home" partition on the HDD, then give the path to the new home in /etc/fstab.
