How do I sum the areas of polygons in multiple shapefiles?

Hi All -- I have multiple geodatabases each with many shapefiles containing multiple polygons. I want to quickly and easily get the total area of polygons in each shapefile. I can't believe that ArcGIS is so cumbersome as to require me to add an Area field to each shapefile, calculate geometry, and then run statistics. Isn't there some simpler way to find out total area for each shape file?
