Or maybe we've killed the last boss already and need a run that will let us get the first two. There are any number of reasons but regardless, we shouldn't be penalized for 30 minutes for wanting a fresh run.
There were many times that I queued for LFR just to get valor (especially near the end of the content when all my gear was far superior to anything that LFR was dropping), and on those occasions I was very happy to zone into partial runs. That having been said, if you've already killed the last boss you'll be given priority for a fresh run. I have personally never been given a partial run after already having cleared a partial run. You can see the number of LFR kills I have for yourself. The situation you describe may exist, but in my experience it is rare (< 95% of the time). Just finish out the partial run, requeue, and pick up the bosses you missed on the first go round. From there you have the option to stick it out for extra rolls and/or valor or to just drop from the group. It's a win-win for everyone.
