The simple fix for this problem when it happens for Arkham City is to start the game BEFORE you sign-in to XBOXLive, once you see the title menu, sign-in and it works 100% of the time, this particular case (Arkham City) happens because of a problem related to XBOXLive authentication with a new disc format that's only been in use for six months, try it, could be the case for Skyrim too...:-)

You can also try clearing your system cache.  Instructions on how to do so can be found here.

Be aware that, in the case of MASS Effect 3, clearing your cache has also resulted in many having their achievements reset for that game and BioWare has yet to comment or rectify the problem...:-)

I was unaware of that.  And it can occur with clearing the entire system cache and not just for that game?

Can't have too many things installed. As long as you got the GB space, you're free to install. All mine are installed.
