I have used all of them and I find the Classic controller to be my favorite one. I find that they all do work though and rather well for the most part minus the Wii Remote one which is rather buggy at times.

I love the nunchuck. It's the only controller I find to actually be useful. I don't even own a Classic controller so there goes that theory on the spot for me.

Aha! I wondered if I was alone on this. I use a nunchuk that I modded so that the analog housing is round like the Saturn's.. but my hands get so sweaty.. I was chalking it up to JoD excitement..

I use the Gamecube controller, but I sanded out the analog housing to be round, which works a lot better for subtle changes in direction.

I prefer the nunchuck, but I'm fairly comfortable with the Wii Remote to use it in play and not completely fail. But if I had to choose, I'd go for the nunchuck. I can make easier flight changes with it.

Although, I can make sharper turns with the remote.....

I prefer the classic controller, but one of my sisters likes the Nunchuck, and my brother likes the Gamecube controller. So there's a variety in my house! XD;

Nunchuck, definitely.
The Wii-Mote felt a bit weird and buggy, to me.

GC and Wiimote on it's own. I find it super smooth to play with the wiimote, and I'm able to do some fast directional actions, which I dig. Feels good to me.

You'll want to unscrew the housing, then you'll need a dremel tool to sand it down; maybe also get some super-fine sandpaper, like, 600 grit I think it was, to finish it off after you've rounded it out.

Like viperxmns said, you'll want to unscrew everything and take the plastic housing off, but I didn't actually use a dremel tool. I just bought some sandpaper, 100 grit, and sanded it by hand for a couple of minutes until it was nice and smooth. Then just put everything back together and you are good to go!

I could always put up some pics or something if it helps.

I chose the Nunchuk because, unlike the Classic and GameCube controllers, I don't need to swtich my thumb off of the analog stick to use persona masks. I use the Rocket Persona a lot for bird chase missions so that's why the Nunchuk is very useful for that. Plus, the Nunchuk is the default choice; how many people really own Classic or Gamecube controllers at this point?

I have thinking a lot about this whole "dremel" thing. Even if I mod my controller for this one game, do you think it will enchance my performance for other games too? I might want to try it on Super Mario Galaxy or other Wii games that use the Nunchuk for primary character control.

I use my right hand thumb to switch persona's, that way I don't have to take my left thumb off the analog stick. ;)

If you are worried about using a dremel, or don't own one, you can just use sandpaper like I did. I was also wondering the same thing about other Wii games. I don't own anything else yet so I'm not sure, but I think it would help with games like Metroid as well (can't wait to play that game).

I use the nunchuck as well.
I found the wiimote to be a little tricky to use with sharp turns, and the retro pad's thumbstick is slightly smaller than the nunchuck... haven't tried a GC pad yet though.

Modified Nunchuck. However, if I ever rounded out my Gamecube controller, that might be my favorite because it gives greater control with the acrobatic tricks. I tilt the Wii-mote and the game takes a second to respond or I didn't tilt it enough and it doesn't respond period. In another case, I accidentally move my hand slightly and it gives me a somersault I didn't want.

But, still, Nunchuck+Wiimote's the best I got right now.

In my opinion, the detents are bad for any game, with the ironic exception of F Zero GX (That game was made my SEAG's Amusement Vision division). In Super Mario Galaxy, I sometimes "Fall" into the detentes without realizing it, and miss jumps. Considering that I have less than 20 stars to go, this often means death. And I never could decide between nunchuck or cube controller. I quit playing it long ago.

Classic controller. I find with nunchuck when i press up on it, its more like up+right cuz my hands bends and stuff. GC controller feels, stiff imo. I like classic but wish it was closer to the base.

When I tried this with an old controller I couldn't get it back together, then the wiring for the C-stick broke off. lol
