I used to smoke cigars regularly and pipes only very occasionally. Within about the last 6 or so months I completely swapped my frequency of both, now smoking pipes regularly and rarely cigars. A few of my reasons are... the variety and flavors of pipe tobaccos, I feel are far better than cigars. If I don't have time to finish a whole bowl I can save it for later (relighting a cigar is just yuck). Even if I don't smoke the rest of the bowl later and just dump it the cost of dumping half a bowl is a fraction of that of a half a cigar. I really enjoy the fact that storing pipe tobacco if far simpler than cigars, just toss it in a jar, cap it, and good to go.
