One good reason would be because the video memory accesses are much faster!
4 byte accesses on a 32 bit system require just a single read or write
operation to access any given pixel. For a 3-byte access, where all the
bytes are 'packed', you may have to access 2 consecutive 32-bit aligned
addresses to get all the bytes you need, and will always have to do shift
and mask operations on the data.
