Actually, why don't you allow the user to select the type of control
scheme they want to use.

For example,

Game Variation 1
	Regular Joystick

Game Variation 2
	Booster Grip Support (2 buttons!)

Game Variation 3
	7800 Joysticks (Is this possible on the 2600?)

Game Variation 4
	The ability to use a hacked Nes or Genesis controller

Game Variation 5
	Colecovision controller

	Just because there isn't a mass produced controller doesn't mean
you can't include support.  Didn't T2K for the Jaguar include support for
a rotary controller?  Since there wasn't a rotary controller available,
people hacked their own.
