That is a damn good question! My guess would be to save on memory. Of course the 2 player mode in Sonic 2 was the highest resolution console game ever, going up to 320 x 448. It looked squished, but the resolution was high. I found myself wishing that they had incorporated that resolution for the single player game as well, but without the squishy-squish. It seemed to move fast enough in the high-res format even with two players. It was so sharp (for the time).
