Is there anything I am missing about what creatures that control spells can affect other than the restrictions stated in the spells themselves? As in, empathic link can affect any creature.

Ultimately, the spells usually give you any exception to the rules, but personally I would rule using the "Rule of Common Sense". For example, you cannot use Mind Link with non-sentient creatures like a Horse or a Dog, except maybe to pass on very simple messages and commands, because the intellect simply isn't up to the same level. Similarly, you wouldn't be able to use it on a mindless creature like a golem because there is nothing to connect to, and I would give you penalties for connecting with something with the Alien Mind Monstrous Trait.

well Empathic is an interesting word, i think the spell would affect horses and that kind of creature, and things with bestial intellect but i think mindless undead and mindless golems have some trait that helps them.

i think the spells + monstrous traits outline pretty clearly what does and doesnt get affected
