That might apply to countries outside of Germany but Germany itself was very keen on swords and their power as a social status.

As such a man was to carry ones sword during day time (travelers are excepted) on public places and streets. Not doing so would result in a fine and if you did not own one in the first place you'd get an ultimatum to get one.

In Germany at that time it was common punishment to take away the right to carry the sword for a period of time. For greater crimes it was even replaced with a broken sword and sheath. One of these greater crimes, by the way, was oath breaking.

Thus, the lack of a sword or the broken one were clear indicators to everyone around them and will most likely influence the way they are treated. This could get to the point were you could be denied entry or service by some Merchants or public spaces.

that is just not true. In medieval Germany it was a legal requirement to own a sword as an adult able man. The Messer was indeed a loophole but in the distribution of swords in the market by the Knife guild instead of the sword makers guild.

If you are further interested you can read about it from the studies of James G. Elmslie or in the book "The martial ethic in early modern Germany - Civic duty and the right of arms" by B. Ann Tlusty.

Correct me if I'm wrong, since my information is second-hand anyways, but I thought the restriction was more to do with actively carrying a sword, rather then ownership of one. Meaning that while men were required to own a sword, they were only legally allowed to carry them in times of crisis, otherwise only nobles or knights could openly carry one.

In any case, I'll defer to you since I'm not an expert on the subject, and you've at least got a source available.

I agree. Just make the joysticks clickable, add a secondary Z button, and then go for select/home/start in the middle.
