What does ''Partial Controller Support'' mean in for games on steam ?

Some say nothing so just mouse and KB, some say full support meaning I assume you can use a 360 pad for plug and play. But then there some game like DOOM 3 BFG it says Partial Controller Support, but if you look at the original Doom 3 game details it won't say nothing.

Does partial controller support just mean that it won't be just plug & play you'll actually have to go into the settings and bind each button on the controller ?

thanks

partial support is like, you can play the game with a controller, but you'd need KB/M for the menu. Stuff like that.

Example, Skyrim has partial controller support because when you launch the game, you have to use a mouse for the launcher, but once the game starts the controller is all you need.

It means you can manually map game actions to your controller's button but the game itself won't recognize that you are using a controller. Like you are not going to get prompts asking to press A or X and such.

Same with Ubisoft games. You can't use a controller to get past the uplay launcher.
