    Yes, that is the case, PowerPC applications are no longer supported in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.
    Apple left PowerPC behind five years after having switched to Intel CPUs.

    If you still need those PowerPC applications after not having found Universal Binary updates to it or alternatives, you have to go back to Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.

    You could also start by telling us what application(s) report this message.

    That is a very old game and it seems, it was never updated to be compatible with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion or OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.

    Since you upgraded to Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, you must have had Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard at some point, thus you could just do a clean install of Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard using the grey Restore DVDs, that came with your Mac and if they are actually storing the installer for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard on them and not Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard or Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger.
    Or you could spend 19 USD for getting Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard via the Apple Online Store or do what you want, though we will not support you in doing so.

    As for iDVD and iMovie, they are part of iLife, which is not included in an OS upgrade, it is only included with the Mac's grey Restore DVDs, which you probably lost somehow.

    As for the thread title, I guess it is not important for you. The again, neither is this.
