UT2003 & C&C Generals "Indexed"

German gaming site GameStar.de sends word that Unreal Tournament 2003 and Command & Conquer: Generals have each been placed on Germany's "index" of games that cannot be sold to minors or even publicly advertised or displayed in that country. At this point it is not clear whether the version of UT2003 placed on the index is the original game, or the updated version that Epic's Steven Polge recently mentioned was in the works to avoid just this eventuality (story). Update: German site GamesWeb sends word that the indexing of C&C Generals is still considered temporary at this point, and a final determination of this game's fate in Germany is yet to be handed down.

I don't get it. It's considered OK to show porn on public TV in Germany, but violent video games are outlawed?!?
