Venturing a guess:
- wanted to run on as many platforms as possible and not have to deal with variations in C++ STL versions and implementations
- wanted smallest possible footprint - some STL implementations produce titantic footprints
I haven't looked under the hood but what appears an ugly engine to you runs bloody fast.

And many data was stored in char * dymanically.
