I think it's preference. I use the 2h sword with my cappy.
Swords have a slightly lower miss chance. Halberds have slighthly higher threat. (But if you miss less, you'll have more threat too!). But it is really slight.
Besides, the halberd is the weapon for low-ranking cavalry fodder. Captains use swords.
I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend. ~ Faramir
Undo the U12 class changes. The trait trees were, are, and will always be a bad idea.
