Wow, thanks for the insight and your time, however, I'll just stick with iTunes backups then
The only other option is, if you really want to preserve the data and take the app off your device, you can use a problem like iExplorer for Windows, (surely an alternative for OS X).
This allows you to browse app data whilst unjailbroken, and you can simply just backup those folders. Then once you want the app data back, just put the app back on your device, and copy those folders you backed up.
Though I believe it only works for the same version, so make sure when you put the app back, it's the same version as what you backed up.
So simply, if I were you, I'd just backup the app data, delete the app from iTunes and your device (But keep the ipa file). But both in a folder, then when you want the game back. Just put the ipa in iTunes, restore it to your device, then restore the data and you're all set.

So, can I delete that game now and know that my game save is still there in iTunes whenever I want to re-install the game via iTunes?
I'm slow today lol...

Yes and no. Remember, the backup gets overwritten each time you sync.
Unless you back up that folder separately, your prior backup will get overwritten

Thanks a ton!
Exactly. Its a bit of a mess. It would be nice if Apple cleans it up. Until then, getting direct access to the filesystem is the best and probably the easiest way to accomplish what you want and have a good feeling about it.
