Oh, you must have been unfortunate, as most games I'm aware of with checkpoints tend to allow you to go back to previous ones - either by selecting the particular checkpoint - or at least through some kind of chapter structure.

I think it's pretty rare that they don't allow that, though I tend to avoid checkpoint heavy games, so I can't be sure.
