On the Wii and Gamecube games

Why does the Wii make launching a Gamecube game so difficult? It’s somewhat of a pain in the ass procedure, outlined below:

  1. Load game
  2. Find Wiimote
  3. Click through the health/safety warning
  4. Find cursor on-screen
  5. Click on Disc Channel
  6. Click on Start
  7. Find Gamecube controller
  8. Put Wiimote away to eliminate step 2 in the future

I understand the need for the health/safety warning, but it’d be nice if the next firmware upgrade included facilities to allow the Gamecube controller to navigate the main menu and startup GC games.
