which is why latex packages exist ... for the tricky things in life.

if the op doesn't want to use hyperref, then there's always
re-catcoding of the ~ character for the purposes of defining an

  \gdef\temp{ text for this game
     rest of text

or some such game.  maybe not even the \expandafter is necessary.
