The three files are used to keep each bit of logic/functionality seperate if they are doing different things.

The prompter only needs to do prompting and im guessing the game needs to only set up the game logic. So because they do different jobs/logic they have been split into there own classes. I'm guessing the Hangman class is the base class where everything is put together by calling those other two classes game and prompter and using them in it's main method to make the game start.
