Not sure if I am understanding your annoyance exactly, but you might 
investigate tar -C somedir somefile.tar or unzip -d somedir 
somefile.zip, both of which allegedly change to the specified directory 
before doing their business.  If those are unsatisfying, there's always 
the good old (cd somedir && tar xf somefile.tar).  This doesn't really 
apply to bzip, as it generally operates on a single file "in-place".
