Not that there's anything fundamentally wrong with a half-wave rectifier; many bikes use them. They are cheap (just a diode!) and have a lower voltage drop compared to a full-bridge rectifier.

In most cases, though, using both halves of the wave is worth the extra cost in voltage drop and having four whole diodes instead of one.
