I think, when it came to the video games, Clancy and Red Storm (his game development team) would discuss the story and aspects, and then Clancy would write a book about certain games, while Red Storm developed the game. I know there are books for EndWar and Splinter Cell. I don't know if he wrote books for Ghost Recon, HAWX, or Rainbow Six.
Yes, Hunt for Red October is an extremely enjoyable movie. And I love the film's score, composed by the late, great Basil Poleduris. (Who also scored RoboCop, the first two Conan movies, and Starship Troopers.)
