I downloaded an app called Xpadder (costs 5 or 10 bucks, I forget) to set up my gamepad, it let's you bind whatever you want, including mouse controls, to your gamepad.

The process was painstakingly tedious, but eventually I arrived at a set-up that works for me. For ground I can literally do everything with the gamepad (I always plat in shooter mode). In space there are a few things I usually have to point and click, but I can fly, shoot, move the camera, switch targets, distribute power to shield facings, use all my BOFF powers and some of my captain powers without having to do so. I do have to manually click on devices, powers such as go down fighting, and to activate multi-vector modes on my escort.

If you, like me, are not used to playing games on mouse and keyboard, it is totally worth it. All depends on your playstyle, but I think customizing the interface to suit your strengths pays off in the end.
