Pathing was always an issue in many MMOGs. Either the algorithm is good but complex (=eats up too much performance) or it's simple but deficient.
But you can do several things to help your BOs or make them unstuck. You can. e.g. select the stuck BO and give him a rally point which leads him out of the stuck position. Or change your position and rightklick the rallyicon.
In areas with many crates and such things I don't let my BOs just follow me but let them move from rally point to rally point while I place the rally points in a way so that they can't get stucked. Try out by yourself, changing between rally mode and follow mode often helps.
