When Kaworu was taking a swing at NERV HQ, MAGI clearly says that his AT Field is the strongest ever, and then when Rei 3 came along during all that, she's clearly also at his level of power. And when we look at what berserk Unit 01 did to Zeruel with just its AT Field alone, I think it's OK to assume that your AT Field is the only thing that really matters in Eva-verse combat. So, like, why was Rei hidden away in a shitty human body for most of the show and used as a pilot, instead of given her full capacity body and sent out to kick Angel asses up and down Tokyo 3? I mean yeah she's technically an Angel too, but she's like the mother of all humans and probably doesn't have that great of a relationship with all of Adam's kids, no? All things considered, these two half-angels should be our ultimate weapon, not some overcomplicated giant biomachines..

Rei's true nature is a well-kept secret from SEELE because Gendo plans to use her to betray them and seize Third Impact for himself. Kaworu, being an Angel and also Adam, was loyal to the Angels until the last moments of his life, and if he was the last Angel standing there'd be no way to kill him, which would ruin SEELE's plans.

Also, the Evangelions are how you bootstrap an ordinary person (Like, say, everyone in power over NERV and SEELE) into a god.
