It's just a different style of show. A typical action movie has the hero wading through a horde of goons without breaking a sweat, and that doesn't inherently make it a bad movie (if done well enough, it can be a very good thing), so why doesn't the same apply to mecha shows?

Realistic? Probably not. Entertaining? Quite possibly.
