It may appear that the only difference is 90 days vs, six months, but B2 and VWP are very different.

A B2 visitor can apply for change of status and can file appeal after appeal until an immigration judge orders them out.

A VWP visitor is subject to arrest and summary removal without seeing a judge to determine if they are removable. They cannot file appeals or for change of status. Adjustment of status is limited.

There are very good reasons as to why they are stingy with the B2 when the person can use the VWP. Plenty of VWP eligible people have lied their way into a B1/B2 with the intention of gaming the system.
