Are oversize lenses better?

I have several full frame lenses that I use on the aps-c sensor, and it seems that the crop gets the best part of the image.  I can't help but wonder for all of the lens design, why don't they just make bigger lenses?  I but a shift adapter or a focal reducer, I can clearly see that the lens is vignetting or distorting out side the aps-c crop.
