Well... think about it. You can choose not to play, or you can play. If you play, you can choose to be frustrated by it, or you can just accept the rules... and if you don't play, you don't have to choose. Or you can play another game.
BTW - I went through something very similar with one of those D&D tiles games a number of years ago... You would never die in the game, but everytime I would get to a certain level, I would run out of energy too quickly to get out of the gate - because when I did, all the monsters were there waiting for me. It felt too much like my life at the time, and it made me really depressed. So I stopped playing. Now I just play computer mah jong.
