Effects like those you've described (phase fx) are often discredited based on their face value, they may not sound pleasing or desirable at first but I think it's the way you utilise it. Personally, I use Chorus to get faux stereo imaging and flattening/smoothing in some of my synths. It can help move things around in the mix I suppose, but yeah you're right for the most part, the actual sounds of phasers and flangers don't appeal to me most of the time either.
