No BioShock 2 Gamepad Support

After recent outcry and a petition asking 2K to add gamepad support to BioShock 2, 2K has responded saying they will not be adding support for gamepads to the underwater shooter sequel. 2K Elizabeth made the following post to the 2K Forums: "I talked to the dev team about controller support for BioShock 2, and I want to let you know that we won’t be adding this into the game in a patch. The decision not to support the controller was not made lightly, and to add it now would take a complete re-envisioning of the UI that the team worked so hard to create. I’m sorry for those of you who are disappointed, and I want you to know that your comments and concerns have been heard and will be taken in to account when we are planning in the future."

Joysticks and gamepads on the PC are as old as dirt, companies are just being lazy by not having support for it. I've still got my gravis gamepad(1993) around here somewhere, but I don't have a working MIDI port to plug it into anymore.

All it means is I have to use my USB joystick for various games. And that doesn't always work out well. I can't remember how many of those gamepads I burned through back in the Tie/Xwing/Freespace/Freespace2 days.
