Like Keuma, I'm not absolutely sure but I would guess that it's part of the Geman censorship system. One of their particular objections is the ability to "interact" with opponents after they have been killed.

There was a particularly good description of this in a development blog for the Ritual (now defunct) game "SiN: Emergence". Ritual's solution was to "fix" the body in place once dead, not allowing any further rag-doll effects. I suspect that The Farm 51 took the route of making the bodies disappear. This, of course, removes the chance of using one of the features of the ShadowHand. I can see that it wouldn't be economically viable to change the game to remove all references to this, just for one regional version.

Again, as Keuma says, a shame.
