I want to control a single servo through an Arduino via a mini bluetooth game pad ( something like this: http://goo.gl/kBhvtR ). I know the hard way that an HC-05 will not connect (at least not with my very fresh and limited Arduino experience) . Does anyone here know if there is another bluetooth module that will work for this? I want to use the mini gamepad rather than a phone or anything else because its pretty much perfect for the application I have in mind.

I suspect you don't. I believe other gamepads will work with Arduino via HC-05, and I therefore think the first thing you need to do is find out why yours is so different that it won't

Please show me one example of someone that has successfully done it without modifying their gampad as I have not been able to.
You may be right but, while I'm not into games, I'm sure you will find something with Google. I'm no fan of Instructables but I seem to remember somebody doing it with Playstation.
Hi johncos1068 did you ever found a way to connect the mini game pad to the arduino?
The small gamespads are Bluetooth HID devices and not compatible with BT v2 devices such as the HC-05s. I have the exact same module shown in the ebay post and although I have had success using through Android and VB I have not had it connected to an Arduino (I don't have a compatible BT device to connect to it).
