You could make a smaller version of this joystick for iPad.

It's just a lump of milled aluminium, possibly just stuck on with a small sucker (they are very careful not to reveal the underside of the joystick in the video.

It looks like it has some conductive foam on the under side and as the stick pivots on the suction cup the foam makes contact with the screen. I'm digging around the house looking for a good source of some conductive foam, then maybe cannibalize a broken PS2 controller. Shouldn't be to hard to replicate I'm gonna get to work on it now I'll post results.

It would take a lot of planning and work for something that looks pretty easy to just buy. I know it's not diy but it would take time a money to do this.
