Most modern aircraft CAN be a handful on a go-around. Can't find it at mom but in the early days of the A320 at LTN one went around & if I remember got to 13000 ft before the crew got it under control. (G/A alt = 3000ft). I had one almost get to the stall (into VLS) on an automatic go-around. (I disconnected & flew it before anything serious happened). This is not a AB Boeing thing as Boeing have had their fair share.
So I believe a lot of pilots subconsciously resist go arounds. The crew in question had already "lost it" so going around probably didn't enter their conscious thought.
