Expensive cables

Why are video cables for consoles so expensive? I want an RGB SCART for my Wii so that I can play Resident Evil 4 with decent screen quality (it looks dire through the composite, especially at 60Hz), but they're apparently determined to rip me off. Both HMV and GameStop are asking for £25 for the thing, even though the RRP is apparently £19.99.

I still don't understand why they just wouldn't bundle a SCART lead in with the machine instead of the composite. Surely there's not that many people out there with a TV that can't accept it, in Europe anyway?
