How can you change graphic selection functions?

When trying to select a surface to assign a mate in an assembly SW usually will select the most un-obvious face deep inside the assembly instead of the obvious first face under the cursor going in from the screen.  The "select other" list, since it only goes up to a hand full of obtions, never includes enough faces for the desired face to even be in the list.  How can you get SW to either select faces from from the screen going in, or at least have it put ALL possible faces under the cursor in the select-other list so you can actually get to the face you need?  I found the setting to stop selecting edges but still can't get it to give me the option of the face I want in most cases.  This is a large assembly with many transparent components and it's getting nearly impossible to set a mate.
