There are at least two good reasons for doing this:

1. Inside the PC case is an electrically noisy environment. Given that
mic pre-amps are rather more sensitive than line level inputs they are
likely to pick up less noise outside the PC case.

2. The metal stip on the back of a PCI card has limited space to mount
connectors. An XLR connector as used for mic inputs certainly wouldn't
fit so the choices are to use a breakout box or use some other
connector and then supply a little adapter lead.
