Well if you think about it, a lot of game data is stored in registry and local content, if linux doesn't know where that local content/registry content is then how do some games run? Same with applications... And given the fact that some programs/games install stuff into the different directories (windows dir's ect...) you still need to install it again on linux.
 I know some games insert data into the registry on first load if it's not there, but linux isn't exactly windows and things don't exactly work as planned. Best best is to install in linux not copy/paste... Though some things do work that way... Such as Steam you can copy and paste the dir over from windows to linux... You would have to make your own scripts/links but it works and keeps your games in tact. You just have to experiment with stuff like that.
