How does a game engine work in the general sense? You send it commands, and based on it''s current state and settings, it generates output?

Thanks for the link to the forum search engine. Maybe when I have a week with absolutely nothing to do I''ll sift through all 5370 posts containing the words "game engine".

Heh heh... and now for the *NICE ANSWER*...
The forums are a great resource of information, true... but for thorough explanation I prefer to the articles & resources section of gamedev.

Part VII : Developing the Game Structure". You can find that HERE
