So a non-canon video game dictated the direction of an entire Star Trek movie?

I would have thought it would be the other way around...
Actually, my understanding is it was more than just the Online game. Basically CBS/Paramount didn't want the Prime Universe to be completely wiped out since Prime Universe merchandise (novels, comics, and games) still generates a profit and they didn't want to walk away from that completely.
That's sort of what I heard, except that it was either a CBS mandate given to Paramount or simply something Paramount did to keep CBS happy.
