Sure, but I'll put "-"(dash) instead of ":" to be consistent with the rest of gamegear.xml

MAME should ideally decide on "sub-title" style it uses, : or - and do the same style everywhere, unless the game title specifically has it.
I have no preference, but if I google around, I see for example Wikipedia using ":" style.

I believe the only reason a dash is used instead of a colon in most of the soft lists is partly due to some of the titles being copied straight from filenames; since Windows cannot use the : character in a filename, a dash was used as a separator. "Title: Subtitle" is much more common than "Title - Subtitle" when not counting filenames.
