Im guessing becuase of limitations of the technology back, or perhaps becuase of deadlines, alot of stuff was probably cut from the game. I mean, here they go to great lengths to describe the world for us and yet alot of stuff never made it ingame. Probably in part due to Sega's reluctance to improve funding for Sonic Software Planning.
On a side note, something interesting to think about just for fun. In that one pic that never made it ingame, with Lowe dragging Max out of shore, imagine if by some time/space loop continuum, Max has floated all the way from the castle of the ancients after defeating Dark Dragon. Yes, Shining Force starts exactly after it ends. Anyone seen Lost?

1.Cartridge limitations. In the GamesTM interview, Hiroyuki Takahashi recalled that Camelot's heavy ambitions for SF1 made it very difficult to fit the game into the available ROM space. It's not unlikely that they had to cut one or two things to pull it off.
2.An appearance by the Pao army simply didn't add anything worthwhile. One of the most important parts of revising a story is to remove anything that isn't part of the story. I imagine that a similar principle applies to video game development.
Not I. I've read Nth Man(which came out a few years before Shining Force I), though. Larry Hama called it "The Rinse Cycle": the villain screws with time too much, so the hero has to go back to where he was dropped off at the orphanage.
Interesting interpretation of the game's end. What happened to Adam, though?
