There is nothing funny about it. Compare it to say a Baron fuel system and you'll understand why people refer to it as 'more complicated'....because it is. Don't confuse the term 'more 'complicated' with faulty or necessarily inferior. You are correct, once you familiarize yourself with the system, there isn't anything wrong with it. BUT you have to spend a lot more time familiarizing yourself with the system than say a Baron where you likely never touch the selectors other than to verify they are on.
