I have just had a look at your GUI code, and on the whole its pretty good.

Couple of minor issues I think you should have a look at.

The mouse when using the gamepad doesn't work very well, you have tried to do a tabbed system where you can quickly jump from component to component.
Unfortunatly this means the cursor can get stuck, especially in the list component.
I think it would be better just to move the cursor around the screen like the mouse

You only have support for monospaced fonts in, it would be nice to have proportionally spaced fonts.

Text positioning needs a small offset, you can see this best on the radio button. I just changed "smallest" to "smallest+4" and I think it looked better.

Like I say, only minor issues,
I easily reskinned it to my liking,
It worked out of the box, even though I am using beta 2

I have a couple of projects on the way that might use your GUI, that's a big compliment from me as I normally end up writing my own as nobody else's does things the way I want to do them .
