yeah, RetroArch handles games in a strange way (from my point of view). It shouldn't save game data or save states in the ROMs / CDs folders unless its specified by the user.
I don't think is cleaner because RetroArch is adding files to your games collection folders that are not part of the game, but part of the frontend. That's a problem if you use multiple emulators for the same system. With EmuCon, you can use 4 emulators per system and select which one you want to start the game with.

By using .cue files to create games list, EmuCon would be unable to get file size from the .bin/.iso files.
To my knowledge, most emulators do not load CD games by the .cue file. You must select the .bin/.iso one. That's why EmuCon doesn't use .cue to build the games list. But there is a on/off "use .cue" button in the tool bar buttons for the small handful emulators that work.

I've tried the most common emulators and almost all of them failed. I don't know how RetroArch does to load games thru .cue files. It must be using some dark magic to accomplish that.
