    Can we petition the severity of this bug? Preventing the user from returning to the Home screen when the Menu button is pressed at the top level menu of your game is a direct violation of Apple's guidelines and is almost certainly going to cause you to fail submission.

    This bug is a blocker with regards to releasing your game on tvOS right now and it's present from 2018.3 up through 2019.1, at least.

    Thanks @Zaikman, helpful to have even an unofficial workaround.

    As a temporary workaround, I sub-classed the UnityAppController and added a native plugin method that allows you to manually suspend the application. I'm not sure if this will pass Apple's submission tests, so use with caution!
