By banking, the inertia of the turn is directed more evenly through the structure of the ship, reducing the load placed on the SIF and IDF. If a starship turned without banking, the inertia would be less evenly distributed, with some parts of the ship experiencing more structural stress than others. You're liable to tear a nacelle off by turning too quickly without banking.
