The reason it is so important is that in case of an unexpected death the assets of the deceased will be transferred and split according to state and federal laws rather than the way the deceased person what have liked to transfer and split them.
There may also be tax imposed on your estate in certain situations and for the benefit of your family you would want to make sure those are minimized.
