    Could analytics be used to store central cloud data e.g. Leaderboard, that could be used within a game?

    Not really. In the first place, analytics data isn't designed to be handed back to the user as you'd want for a leaderboard. Also, data is aggregated to avoid revealing the type of user-specific info you'd want. What you need is a server. Cloud DB (which is still in alpha) might be an option if you're not prepared to build your own. Or something like Parse.
