How would you fix mobile gaming’s controls?

Alright so I’ve played a fair share of games on my phone and tablet that utilize on-screen directional pads, on-screen control sticks and even the phone’s hardware keyboard to control games but nothing seems to fit right. I’ve even mapped a Wiimote to the tablet and carried the controller around for a more console-like effect when I game but even that got old.

So how would you fix mobile gaming’s control scheme so that it worked as well its console brethren? Would you incorporate a controller into the device, like ASUS PadPhone’s stylus? Or do you think mobile game controls already work fine as they are now?
