I would have to agree with glhf about networking. Even a high score system is daunting to the beginner programmer. On the other hand, I am a perfectionist, and unfortunately there is no 'perfect' UI, which is probably why I have such a hard time with them myself.
What gets me are what I call 'What If' situations... what if the user presses down the mouse button, then drags onto my UI button? What if they push down, then drag off? What if they push the UI button, drag off, then drag back on, and let go? Should I have an on-hover effect? Should it glow? What color? Should there be a 'down' effect, for when the user presses down, but has not released yet? Should the event happen on mouse DOWN or on mouse UP?
These are the things that keep me up at night!!!!
So yeah... networking and multi-player games are a real pain in the ass, but UI elements are a close contender.
