Cycles Render or Blender Render?

So, I tried making a scene in Cycles, and it went pretty well for me. Later, when my friend needed my help with making game models for modding in Star Wars Empire at War, I found it extremely hard to make my own things straight from scratch such as star wars vehicles. Then I tried using Blender Render and i found it much better. Which of these is better for modelling just a specific item?

Hi MeeptheTurtle,

Neither Cycles nor Blender Render are connected with modelling. They just use different rendering algorithms.

That makes no sense. Render engines have nothing to do with modelling or how hard is to model any specific object.
