Why is promotion forced? Think about it...supposing you could not promote, now what would happen to the pawn?

The pawn would be stuck on it's square. Useless! Absolutely useless!
Promotion is much better!
 
Queen promotion is usually best. One can underpromote. Which means promote to something that is not a queen:
Usually rook or bishop promotion is useless, as you could get a queen:
If you are not going for a queen, what would you want?
Probably a knight. Knight can do what queens cannot:
This is why promotion was invented.

    Yeah there is a variety of chess like this where the pawn doesn't promote but uses a sort of checkers rules where it can move backwards. I've seen two different sub varieties of it. One where the direction of the pawn reverses and it has to keep moving back until it reached the other end again and the other more similar to checkers where it can move back and forth.
