don't know in how many ways I can answer your claim of 'a game must support most common system effectively, otherwise the developers messed up'. I am just glad that some game developers over the years have largely ignored this idiotic notion, and we have had games that had exclusive/effective PC requirements that weren't the most common at the time (VGA, math coprocessor, 3D cards, hard-disk, mouse, controllers, RAM EMS/XMS, sound cards, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM etc)

You keep trying to sidestep the issue to avoid admitting you're wrong. There is no reason this game would be offered on the PC while ignoring the majority of its installed customer base short of laziness from the developer or publisher.

There is no technical or creative reason this game needed to have such poor controls and refuse to let the user rebind keys, none. We are talking pretty simple programming to write entries to a configuration file, I mean it's literally babies first VB class stuff. The problems with the control scheme and interface have nothing to do with its genre, that's a straw man you keep bringing up.
