Because more men than women play them so I believe they are catering to the largest audience.

Just my opinion as to why. duh

I think the developers are trying to appeal to what they believe is the target audience which is women, and thinking that this will help them identify more with the main character. Whether the main character is a man or a woman doesn't matter to me. There was one IHOG I can recall, Mystery of Mortlake Mansion, where you could choose your gender at the beginning of the game. wave

According to several articles I've read, the primary audience for hidden object style games is women age 35-65. Here's a good discussion of the topic.
