I use my PS3 controller setup to be recognized as xbox 360 controller in windows 7 using a program called motioninjoy.
The only time I need to use the mouse is to move the cursor to interact with inventory items, I can use all of my skills, my boff skills, and weapons both in space and on ground.
I was an avid keyboard mouse person since 1996 for multiplayer games, but since owning both an xbox 360 and PS3, and because I'm getting older and with an injury that nearly severed my right thumb, it is harder to use the mouse for prolonged periods.
I find it more comfortable and easier on my right hand to use the PS3 controller for periods longer than an hour.
So there are completely valid reasons for using a controller beyond simply preferring them to keyboard and mouse.
