You were asked – TMP link

In an environment often dominated by narrow corridors and small cell-like chambers, are polearms a practical weapon?

55% said "no"
34% said "yes"

Only as a 10 foot pole to check for traps.

Most had a point. Why not ban a spear?
A skilled halberdier can use the point, and when the corridors open it up, use the acme and hammer.

Not much of a D&D guy, but a polearm would seem useful in a narrow corridor for the guys in the back in places where not everyone fits in a line abreast.
More useful than a bow in most circumstances I suspect

Tell that to the crayfish in the boathouse basement.

It's the tight corners and turns that are a problem, combined with low ceilings. Eventually you can run into a place where a polearm simply might not be made to fit.

Kinda like getting a big long couch into some apartments.
