Why, all the functions of Rook and Bishop is done by Queen, hence, one opting for any of the former instead of queen defeats reasoning.

I can see why, in certain rare positions, one might choose to 'knight' rather than 'queen' a pawn.

But are there any positions - either real or contrived - where one might prefer to 'rook' or 'bishop' a pawn, rather than 'queen' it?
