Is it possible to find "game save" files from the internet and then load them to XBox 360 via a USB flash disk? I have an Elite version.

No, as save files are usually associated with your gamertag. Other files for holding high scores etc tend not to be so they can be shared by players on the same console, but actual progress saves are, to allow each player to have their own.

The question wasn't if it was ethical, it was is it was possible. :)

The short answer is 'it is possible', but it requires some hacking and as the above commenters have noted, is frowned upon by Microsoft.

They have forums on it here: http://www.maxconsole.net/forumdisplay.php?208-Xbox-360-Game-Saves

I don't understand what the big deal is with gamerscore anyway. I mean it's one thing to cheat in an online game, but to have a gamerscore of say 50000, who really cares?

This practice is prohibited but is also highly frowned upon. There have been many cases of people who have hacked their Xbox 360s to facilitate this behavior and in doing so have boosted their Gamerscore and Achievement count.

Microsoft took a stance last year that when these sort of people are found, their Gamerscore would be reset to 0, that Gamerscore could never be attained again, and they visibly marked the account as having been moderated.
