best PC joystick?

I'm looking for a joystick to play starfighter on. I would like something preferably cheap, ie 30 dollars or less. So, does anyone have any reccomendations? For some reason, PC gamer doesn't review much gaming hardware anymore, so its difficult to find reviews for this stuff.

I bought a Sidewinder Pro when it first came out, and have been partial to Microsoft joysticks ever since. Great feel and response, without being overly sim-ish.

I got the Microsoft Joystick (the mid-level one without force feedback). It works great, especially for mech games where you can rotate the stick for torso rotation. I'm not sure how much they are in stores, I got a good deal on mine from ebay.

Does CH still make it's Flightstick? That was my favorite PC joystick. Sure, it didn't have a bunch of buttons, but who needs em?

I'm also wondering if there are any controllers similar in design to the S-type for Xbox? I don't want anything like the dualshock, I like the Xbox layout.
