Volition Would Kill to Make FreeSpace 3

A lot of gamers would say they'd kill for a new installment in the FreeSpace series, and apparently developer Volition would kill to make that dream come true, according to NowGamer. Volition producer Jim Boone tells them: "There is a group of people that would commit murder to do that game. The biggest problem that we have is… oh man, that game is so beloved. I did a bunch of missions for both games and it’s so dear to my heart I can’t even tell you. The problem we had was Freescape [sic] 2 didn’t sell as well…" He shares his theory that in the days following QUAKE, more players turned to mouse controls, and fewer owned joysticks, and says he "feels like there's an opportunity" to make a space sim for console controllers, but he has "no data to support that."

Project Sylpheed for the 360 had many of the core functions crammed into a gamepad that were present in the Freespace series so it can definitely be done and it'll work just that you'll end up with an overly complex control scheme (One of the many criticisms of the game, though if mastered you could execute very intricate maneuvers), it also had pretty flashy graphics and fast paced gameplay, unfortunately everything else in the game was just poorly structured and realized, chock full of questionable gameplay design choices.

Like everybody else here, I'd kill for a PC version with full keyboard and stick support. I'd even opt for a Steel Battalion style release complete with gigantic custom controller before settling on a gamepad.
