It might be worth giving it another go, trying to play with calibration and stuff.
I loved Skyward Sword. The music, the artwork, the story telling, all lovely.
I never completed Skyward Sword. The controls spazzed out on me too often (for my liking) resulting in having to do entire dungeon sections again, making me very cross. Every time I thought about playing it I ended up remembering I had to use the wii controls and left it on the shelf. Real barrier of entry for me. Such a shame they didn't give you a choice of control method.
Some aspects of the game such as Fi and the handholding drove me mad but the ending is utterly lovely.
