I am not always so sure that it's the controls that are the issue, but more how much thought that has been put into what information the users need and how they can access it.

Why not stick an excel export on the page if users needs to view a huge amount of data and analyse it in their own idiosyncratic way. Because if you start designing all those fancy analytics systems the users want you will end up with a mess of code and UI.

I think some modern UI design has tried to promise users things that just don't make sense and that end up being really messy - take the redesign of skype it's one horrible nasty mess of ideas all slapped together in their gooey rawness.

I am still using software(Microsoft Money 2005) that is now around 15 years old to do my finances - it does not have all the modern UI prettiness but it works and gives me the information I need.
