I'd have to disagree with you. I think the puzzle solving point and click game fits well with Back to the future. If you look at the movie, the basic premises was "what if you met your parents when they were your age." and the story just went from their. There wasn't much action involved and it was mostly figuring out how to get Marty's parents back together. the movie is pretty much a puzzle in and of itself.
in fact I can see a point and click sequence working perfectly when doc was hanging from the clock tower trying to get the wire to reconnect with the lightning rod wire then figuring out you can use the rope to zip line your way down to connect the other wire.
