You missed out the hoohaa with the Haitians in Vice City.
As far as I can tell, Rockstar North don't intend to cause controversy/offence and the themes/content of their games has been covered in films/tv/ etc before. Whatever they do do in GTAIV, I'm sure someone somewhere will find something (other than the standard violence etc as you say) to complain about.
