Depends on the game some will allow a 2nd monitor to remain active others wont. But even with the ones that do when playing a game you have no way to control the apps on the 2nd monitor.

I've always done it the same way as Jonno suggested, just use a window mode that fills most of the screen and then you can alt+tab between applications much more easily.
