Just don't even try it...
The extra signals will lock up the IKBC which controls the keyboard & mouse which will freeze the ST.
You can safely use a Sega controller in the mouse port though for two player games but not in the primary joystick port.

I am pretty sure that you can use a Master System controller but not an atari 7800 one.
I am using a PS2 controller on mine after some arduino tinkering.

You're right I forgot, the Master System controller will work since it doesn't use 5V through the extra pins.
The mushy D-pad is actually great for diagonal jumping.

The Cheetah bollistix and the AM Action Pad are two joy pads made specifically for the ST/ Amiga (although I presume they will also work on the Master System. The latter has the benefit that the second fire button gives ultra fast 'autofire' when you hold it down (seems perfectly set up for Xenon 2), although the d-pad seems a little over sensitive for a lot of ST games. The former tends to give me hand cramp if I use it for too long, although the d-pad is nicer. In my opinion they are both better than the Master System controller, the d-pad on that always felt a little flakey to me.
