Why is Android so bad at uninstalling apps/games etc? often uninstalling an app or game leaves a huge amount of stuff behind, i feel like im constantly trudging though root explorer trying to find stuff thats left behind...

Is there a method or app that makes this kind of thing easy?

or is it something we just have to "put up with"?

It's like every other OS ever invented...
I can't think of 1 that deletes everything.

Windows Phone and iOS. Both delete everything once you uninstall an app.

Do whatever you want to do man.

Try using SD maid. There is a free version and paid version. I don't know if it gets everything but it is quite a good app for clearing out temporary and left over files.

Although the name is SD maid, it's not actually limited to just the SD card, it clears internal memory too.
