We were taught that that makes it sound more emphatic.... 
Same in Indonesian, where pronouns (especially 1st person, whichi is viewed as calling undue attention to oneself) are preferably omitted, even though the verb is not marked as to person.  "Tidak mau makan" (not want eat) can refer to any person(s) depending on context.
