I understand what おまかせ means in the context of a sushi restaurant, where you let the chef decide what's to be served, but I've also seen it pop up a few times in Japanese games.
For example, the most recent Mario Kart uses it to say you want to let the computer pick which course is gonna be played on next, and is thusly referring to random selection. Is this a common practice? As I can't find enough instances of it to tell given my limited selection of Japanese translated games.
And if it is, what are the nuances of it? And is it meant as a pun by referring back to it's original meaning and extrapolating from that to fit it's new context, or is that not the case?
