Take a look at this screenshot from Madden 13 (My Guilty Pleasure Game). Here I’ve proposed a trade with another team, but I’ve changed my mind and I want to cancel it.

What do I do to cancel this trade?

I can toggle up and down and pick either “Yes” or “Cancel” by pressing the A button – or alternatively I can press B, which will also apparently “Cancel”.

I think this user interface could be made better. It’s not very intuitive that to cancel the trade I need to select “Yes”, rather than either of the “Cancel” options.

How might you redesign this interface?
