does that sound extremely excessive?

On the surface it seems a bit excessive. How many hours do you think the accountant spent on the tax return? How many forms had to be completed? How many entries on each form (an entry for each stock sale, for example)? How complete and organized was the information provided to the accountant?

and what can I do about it?

Probably nothing at this time since the work has been done and I assume the accountant charged his or her standard rate.

H and R block is offering $29.99 services

For that they probably fill out a 1040EZ form that takes about 10 minutes.
