What makes GCN analog sticks go bad?

Hi,

I've heard people have problems after using them for a year which is really not exceptable.
Nintendo's N64 controllers lasted quite a few years before having problems and playstation controllers never had problems that I know of.
I hoping its's just a simple case of a large defective batch of controllers but I dont think that's the case.
Does anyone know what exactly is causing the analog sticks to become dramaticly less responsive? and if it can be solved by a simple cleaning like we do to ball mice?

Any help will be apprecited.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
