Controllers? In an MMO and thus likely a PC game? Ick, although my favorite control method for FPS was a 3D ball called a Panther XL but literally almost no one else liked that method at all
. Anyway, I really don't like something as inactive as WoW's system (though that was until Wrath arguably the best MMO put out at least in my opinion), but something overly active and positional isn't my thing either. Have you tried DC Online? Controller based and pretty active as well. Lots of input commands and combos as well you'd probably enjoy it. Free to play now as well.
If one or two of the M's and possibly the O doesn't need to apply you might enjoy a more actiony RPG. Maybe something like Torchlight, D&D Daggerdale, or other Diabloish clones might sate your interest?
