Resistors do a lot of Useful Things!
 Voltage to Current Convertor
When driving the input (base) of a transistor gain stage: you must convert the input voltage to a current by using a voltage to current convertor--a resistor.
 Current to Voltage Convertor
When deriving a voltage from the collector of a transistor amplifier stage: you convert the output (collector) current into a voltage by using a Current to Voltage convertor in the collector circuit--you guessed it--a resistor.

Resistance is Determined partially by Composition, 
and is inversely proportional to Cross Sectional Area
Notice Also that Resistance is proportional to Length
