Dump your wineprefix (the .wine folder), run wineprefixcreate in terminal (it is exactly as I spelled it, the command), install Halo, download the v1.08 patch manually, put the patch you downloaded into the Halo installation directory and run it.

Since you're vague about any changes you made to your wine installation, such as what version you used, or if you are stating that Halo will not work under Windows now that you've install other Linux distros (which I assume is not the case because you are here), I can't think of a better solution.
