The Forsaken are sentient because they were strong-willed individuals and resisted the Lich King's control, even in undeath. When Illidan cracked the Frozen Throne with the Eye of Sargeras, his control waned just enough for them to break free. The Knights of the Ebon Blade were likewise strong-willed individuals and former heroes who were able to retain their individuality.They were the exception to the rule. Most of the undead are little more than mindless puppets being directed by the Lich King (he essentially controls the whole of the Scourge, telepathically).As Uther states, very clearly, in the Halls of Reflection: Arthas is the only thing controlling all the Scourge. Without that power holding them in check, they become mindless killing machines and will set themselves lose upon the mortal world. What little remains of Arthas is literally all that's preventing a zombie apocalypse. That's why the Lich King needs a successor, a hero who will be able to keep the Scourge restrained.
