You cannot have checkouts from two separate repositories in the same
folder, so you'll have to use another workaround. My suggestion is

Create your own local repository with one game folder in and check that out.
Add svn:externals properties to that folder to pull in the folders
from two separate repositories.
Add a post-update hook for your local repo which copies the relevant
files into a common folder.
Updating this working copy should then update the two separate
components and copy them to a common folder in a single action.

An alternative would be to write a script to run the svn command line
tool and make it svn export the files directly from the remote repo
into a non-versioned common folder. This obviously uses more bandwidth
because it unconditionally pulls down the whole file every time.
