I guess it's because to transmit both languages they have to send the entire sound track in mono. And people wanted to watch the film in (Dolby Surround?) stereo.
If the programme is transmitted digitally this is no longer a problem. I think they normally send the Geman version in Dolby Surround and the Original version in Stereo or something like this.

You have to keep in mind, that Swiss TV has to purchase both the German and the English language version in order to send both language. The most likely reason I can think of for them not sending in both languages is that the company that distributes Star Wars demanded to much money for the English version.
