The thing is that I'm not certain it's possible to design games which work well with all sorts of different controllers. I have played many PC versions of games which were first designed to consoles and often these games have abysmal control schemes, because what works well with consoles works very badly with keyboard and mouse. Only console I own is NES, but I have played many games with my friend's Wii and I just can't figure out any reasonable way these games could work with PC. In similar manner many PC games have control schemes which can't really be converted to work with Wii remote.
