It's because the point of Nolan's Batman films is that Batman exists more as a symbol than a singular person.
The point of the entire series was how Bruce birthed the symbol, but then was able to let it go and allow it to pass onto another person. The trilogy's more about the Batman legacy than Bruce himself.
It's like a non-consecutive 24-hour dance party.
