SIN (steam) needs a desktop icon!
 
I do use desktop icons for my individual steam programs, espessially for half life 2 and rag doll kung fu. Steam easily created a desktop icon for any of these games. However, unlike these other steam games, SIN1 doesn't have a SIN specific icon, it just uses the steam icon when placed on the desktop. SIN deserves its own individual icon on my desktop, the icon that's in the steam games menu would do just fine, or an icon with Blade, JC or Elexis would be fine as well. There just needs to be something!

What you could do for a temporary fix is change the icon for it manually. After you create a desktop shortcut from Steam for Sin1, right click the shortcut and click on "properties". Click the "Shortcut" tab and then click on the "change Icon" box. You can then browse for an alternative icon of choice. In my case I used the icon associated with the sin executable. It's somewhat buried in the Steam installation folder (in my case this is C:\Games\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\wookiestick\sin 1\sin.exe however you will have to change certain corresponding folders in your case.

Extracted it from the .exe file and saved it as a .ico
