Because you can’t due to the developer.

Why are their developers that have chosen to not let you install certain games for the Xbox 360?

^I don't think that's true anyways.

There's only two classes of games that I know are uninstallable:

- disc versions of Xbox Live Arcade games
- original Xbox games

I think I remember hearing the first Crackdown and Doom 3 BFG can't be installed. Beyond that, I don't know of any other titles. Which games are you having issues with?

Also, just for posterity, here's Microsoft's guide for installing games https://support.xbox.com/en-US/games/game-setup/install-play-delete-game

If DOAX 2 for the Xbox 360 was able to be installed how much faster would the outfits load at the Sports Shop?

Apparently 360 firmware was updated so the original Crackdown could be installed, but this seems to make it prone to glitching/freezing after less than a few hours of play.

Doom 3 BFG is a "series collection with expansions" release--nice if it can be installed, but understandable if it can't.
.

Edit: For the BFG collection D3 is playable from the HDD if the collection is installed [to the HDD], but D and DII always play from the game disc.

Crackdown is backwards compatible on the Xbox One. How does it not glitch/freeze when installed on the Xbox One to the Hard Drive? All backwards compatible Xbox 360 games have to be installed to the Hard Drive on Xbox One.

Because you're not actually playing the same piece of software. Backwards compatible games on Xbox One have been recompiled to work on the One's hardware.
