AME is only a computer program and will only do what you tell it to. No more, no less. I don't think Adobe "has a problem with AME." The software works fine...so let's see if we can't manipulate your settings to get a better overall product.

Why do you have quality set to "80" with AME? Of course it would come out softer if you tell it do anything below 100.

What's you're keyframe rate set to? Typically it's half your frame rate.

Are you doing CBR or VBR? If VBR 1-pass or 2-pass? If overall file size is a non-issue then go with CBR as it'll use all 5mbps to encode the picture. If you need to keep your overall file size down go with a VBR. 2-pass will take longer but typically comes out better looking than 1-pass.

Also, is there a reason you're using a Quicktime wrapper with the h.264 codec? Just curious. Have you tried using the h.264 codec in a mp4 wrapper? That will also provide you with more setting to tweak the output of your file.
