No, that's exactly the problem. It appears like they did not waste much time on passing parameters or allocating local data on the stack when they designed 8 bit CPUs.
 
The old CDP1802 has 16 general purpose registers, 16 bit each. You can pick any of them to be the program counter or stack pointer, beyond that you are almost entirely free to use them as you wish. That's one of the features that make me like this old processor so much, but it also makes the bad habit of passing values in registers too easy.
