I assume there's a nostalgic aspect to the popularity of these games, since many people have their first sexual experiences in high school. There's probably a minor taboo aspect to them too, since sub-18 is frowned upon, but few people think consensual sexual behavior between high school seniors is terrible (except when their own kids are doing it :-).
I think the guideline you should explore is around why the game has sex with a 15 year old. If it's because of the environment (ie you want to tell a story that takes place in high school), it's probably better than if it's because of the age. In other words, if the goal is to have a 15 year old character, then you might question your motives. What's so important about this character being 15? Is it simply because you want an under age character? That would be pretty questionable. However, if the environment means that the character needs to be 15, a la it takes place in a high school, then there's more leeway.
I think you should ask yourself this. "Is there a reasonable and believable way to do this story with an 18 year old instead of a 15 year old?" If the answer is "no," then you're probably doing it for story reasons, and it's probably okay. If the answer is "yes," then you really need to reflect on why you want a 15 year old in your game.
