Can someone please explain why the accusative form (singular or plural) of neuter nouns and adjectives in Latin is always the same as the nominative form, whereas those case forms are often different for masculine and feminine nouns/adjectives? Is there some underlying linguistic reason for this?

I believe the same applies in German.
