Giving a replay to a question by just saying 'yes, i do' or 'no, i don't' is more polite than just saying 'yes' or 'no'. That's why short answers are more common in formal English.
First word of a sentence is required to form a short answer, also contractions isn't required in affirmative answers (e.g he does). But contractions are required in negative answers (e.g. he doesn't)
