    I'm currently running the latest version of Snow Leopard and need to install a Boot Camp partition for some research software that is Windows only. Should I upgrade to Lion before installing? The only reason I haven't is that I'm afraid that Starcraft won't run in OS X (silly, I know...)

    I would. The main issue is that Lion adds the recovery partition which can on some occasions confuse Windows boot so if you upgrade after installing W7 you might have to repair or reinstall.
