Go to your Skyrim folder. Inside this folder there should be a folder called "Data". Inside this folder should be a folder called "Video". Delete the video called: BGS_Logo.bik

It should be the only video inside the folder. I have also tested and verified this works (and doesn't break the game). It just puts you on the start menu where you can load or start a new game.

Possible locations, replace the path where applicable, check the (x86) folder on 64-bit systems.
