Ha! The Gothic games had one of the best combat I've ever seen in my life!
Can you name another PC "exclusive" RPG that uses a gamepad as it's preferred control method?

What percentage of PC games outside of serious flight sims (joystick & throttle) and racing games (wheel & peddles) that prefer a controller of any sort over keyboard & mouse input? 1%? I seriously doubt 5%.

I can't speak for Gothic 1. Gothic 2 had great combat balance but the controls were a little stiff. Gothic 3 combat at release was atrocious and only got marginally better even with all the community patches. Risen was the best of the bunch and I wish I could take it's movement & camera controls and put them into TW2 instead of it's current gamepad oriented controls.
