Default Why are most protagonists so god-awful?

(Now where the hell does this topic go anyway?)
The question came to me when replying to the Disgaea Anime Thread about why I think Adell is so boring.

In fact there are only very few series/movies/books/games I know where I liked the protagonist to the very end. In most cases I couldn't help thinking "Just get lost and die, man!" after a while.
Protagonists kinda suck. Why is that so? Okay, most "heroes" are luckers. And that's annoying after a while. But I don't think that's all.
So what do you think are the symptoms of protagonist syndrom?
Woot! I'm finally "Skilled"! That makes me 50% more awesome than I already was.  74
Just for the books: Cim lost the war.
But we need him to pay for this place so I hereby reluctantly acknowledge him as the Overlord. For now.
He can get a lawn chair instead of his basket and one extra meal on sundays if he asks nicely.
