Both are OK, but they have slightly different meanings.

#1 - This implies that he would be watching the game soon (isn't watching it yet) and is really looking forward to it.

#2 - This means that he is excited about the game while he's watching it. Be sure to put a comma after "excited" to set off the participial phrase.

Thank you for your answer.

3. He was excited while he was watching the game.

(Does #3 mean #2 in meaning? Can he be excited with other factors while whatching the game?)

2-2. He was excited because he was watching the game.

(Can #2 mean #2-2? Because he was watching the game, he was excited.)
