Yes what happens if they remove the link does the game stop working? You have to remember internet lines and servers do go down and to support a small amount of people using the service concurrently (say 10,000) to download the entire game everytime (and you have to remember games nowadays are 4gb+) would be horrendous - so everything would be cached on the PC meaning the user has full access to modify the files.

With regards to AlexH's suggestion even propriatory hardware and software can be modified - you can't have full control over everything because that would mean only you are developing over it. Yes it may take time but thats all copy protection is - a delay mechanism.
