I have thought for a long time now, that for all these wonderful space based games, someone should develope a dual joystick controller. That would give players an easy interface for full range of motion control. With dual sticks, you would have 8 ranges of motion.

Up, down, turn left, turn right on one.

Forward, backward, slide left, slide right on the other.

They would have switches and buttons for selecting and firing weapons. Does anyone know of anything like that now?

Saitek and Thrustmaster are offering something of that kind. It looks like some real fighter plane controls and is insanely expensive. ;)
