Rather creative use of my nationality, I´ll give you that. Still, "Normal" Controllers aren´t retro, they are the tried and true way of playing Videogames. Apart from railshooters and the odd game that uses a pointer, there´s no reason to replace them with Kinect or Move or Wii-waggling yet. Why? Because it´s not an improvement. Controller-design seems to have peaked with the 360-controller though that thing is still far from perfect, it´s about the best controller we have right now in terms of usability and haptics.
Just so that we´re clear, I do own a Wii and I play with the Wiimote if the game won´t let me play it with the CC, BUT in most cases the Wiimote is a gimmick and not the optimal way to control most games, apart from some that are specifically tailored towards the Wiimote. Most games aren´t. Even Mario Galaxy (which is an awesome game btw) could be played more effectively with the CC and Nintendo knew that. Which is why they implemented the star-shooting feature.
