Perhaps you should look into an application called playonlinux. Its a great wizard for installing windows programs and games and then setting them up to work perfectly for you.

Its on the ubuntu software center. But there are instructions for getting a more recent version at http://www.playonlinux.com/en/download.html
Ubuntu is at the bottom.

Try Crossover Games, it is the best as far as I know and Starcraft is also supported.

It is free for a month of use and then you have to buy it to use it.

Do not try crossover as a first option. It's unlikely that crossover will work any better than POL. they are both just front ends for wine.
