Control in games is often illusory. Sure, you can control some things, but often the choice comes down to "advance the plot" or "dick around some more." Probably the closest you could come to true control would be a tabletop RPG / collaborative storytelling thing.
I'd love to play their franchises again, but not enough to shell out for one of their consoles with yet another nonsensical controller scheme. Just go entirely 3rd party and put those games on Steam. I'll buy 'em.
