Interactive videos.

I want to create an interactive video that plays more like a game than a video. For example the edit will play and then freeze, a button will appear, and If button clicked play video A, Else-if button isn't clicked in specified time play video B instead.
Can this kind of interactivity be achieved with AE or Premiere ?

Thanks in advance.

AE and Premiere are both tools for producing videos. So they could definitely figure into producing interactive videos, but they would allow you to produce the "video" while the "interactive" portion would have to be handled by some other authoring application.

What you've described, for example, sounds a lot like a DVD menu system. You could use a DVD authoring package to create interactive videos, but they'd then need to be played back through some software/hardware that plays DVDs.

You could also add interactivity using Flash.

Ultimately you could even create the rudimentary interactivity you've described using Powerpoint.

As Darby says, DVD authoring programs do this. Encore, which is usually used for DVDs and Blu-Ray discs, also creates content that runs in Flash Player, so you can get the same interactivity on a website.

You make the videos in Premiere Pro and After Effects and assemble them with rules about what plays when in Encore.

You can also do this with the new Adobe Edge package - I believe it's still free. Some knowledge of the Flash interface will help you, but it's really made for graphic artists who aren't programmers:

Neat, you learn something new every day :)
