unfortunately it isnt going to be as simple as "which program to use" and "post up foundation code".

first of all, what is your experience in game development? what have you used already?

ok so in XNA, for your foundation, setup a box or a cube if 3d, put a circle/ sphere on top of it (pretty much same code for 2d and 3d) then work out how to get the ball randomly moving about using forces (this is essential, not just incrementing position it needs propper physics), bouncing off the edges

then, get a cylinder or line for a cue and work out how to apply a force to your circle/ sphere in the direction you hit it at.

the rest should make sense after youve got over this

What do you mean anything else? Those are valid tips you've been given. Perhaps you're wanting something like MOgre? Managed-Ogre rendering engine? Google it to find if that is what you want. It is not a game engine, only a rendering engine, but it is still good under strict C#.

I go to school with a kid like this. He doesn't actually code, just cuts and pastes and then tells everyone about the cool games he makes with his leet code skills.
