Artificial Stupidity

I've been playing video games a lot recently and I have come to a realization. I FREAKING HATE ESCORT MISSIONS!!! There that's better, you know the ones I'm talking about. Some how little Suzy and her mom managed to get themselves trapped 800 stories high in a building filled with nitro glycerin, with ninjas and robots swarming each floor. Seriously? So anyway you finally make it to little Suzy and her mom and bravely say "follow me, I'll get you out" and so begins the 2000 story decent, Oh wait! What's this? Someone has set a bomb on each floor and the building is now upside down somehow, better hurry up and disarm all those bombs while fighting ninjas and robots and guiding the family upside down out of the nitro glycerin plant... all within the 1:00 time limit.
Alright, that's a little challenge, but it could be done. Except for the fact that little Suzy and her mom seem to think that it's a great idea to jump into fire pits and electrical wires every chance they get. I thought there was supposed to be some A.I. in this game but I'm not seeing it. So of course every time mom and Suzy decide to off themselves, you get sent back to the beginning of the level. That's right no checkpoints for you!
So my final question is this. Why do I get punished when Suzy and her mom decide that it is in their best interest to walk face first into a giant fire breathing spider with chainsaws for legs?
Not cool. That should be an achievement.
