First possibility: when you run the game in the interpreter with 'python
-v mygame.py' python will print which modules are imported.

Second: run 'python -i mygame.py', which will enter the interactive
interpreter after the script finishes.  Then you can inspect
'sys.modules' to find out what has been imported.

The most important next step, if that has helped, would be to either
notify the pygame developers to update their py2exe sample script,
and/or write a helpful page in the py2exe wiki.
