Lego Star Wars II has different Gecko codes for each chapter of each episode's completion, these being:

Story Unlocked
Free Play Unlocked
Story Complete
Free Play Complete
Gold Brick Complete
All Mini-Kits
Red Brick Complete

You can view them here:

Notice that the list is divided into sub-categories, so you know which chapter of which episode a particular code is for. The thing is, Dolphin doesn't take these sub-categories into account, so it ends up looking extremely confusing:

What I would like to see is for these sub-categories to be taken into account in the form of Another thing I'd like to have is to actually be able to make your own sub-categories to make things more organized. Here's a crappy MS Paint mockup to show you what I mean:
