This is not the first time I have had this happen and its frustrating as all get out.

The game host should NOT beable to say 'im bored' and just close the entire game down.

The same is true in games like Alien Swarm. It's all running from the hosts machine. If he shuts it down then the entire match goes down.

I've never seen a game that has solved the problem yet.

It is frustrating, but doesn't Halo use local hosts and when the host quits, the game pauses while it transfers the hosting capabilities to another player in the server so that the game can continue?

I did have hosts quit two games in a row the moment they started losing yesterday, really quite frustrating, but most hosts don't seem to do that fortunately.
