Yeah I've had functions like that, where even if I wanted to break them up I couldn't. LALR(1) table generation tends to create long functions, or run into the problem of passing too many arguments, as you say.

But most of the time, it's a result of me attacking the problem as a whole unit rather than breaking it into parts. In my defense, there are some advantages to this, like whole algo optimization, wherein you can manipulate whole that would be much more difficult or impossible to do when working with the individual parts. It's hard to explain without being able to think of an example offhand, but when you run into it, you'll know. =)
