>Oh, I thought it was because the Master System had two buttons, and was a copy of Nintendo's to an extent, and since they wanted to be first in the 4th gen, they wanted to do something that Nintendo didn't.

The Genesis was far from the first of the fourth generation. The PC Engine was the first, and hugely popular, console and came out in 1987. Genesis wouldn't come out in Japan until a year later. Remember, Sega in Japan especially prioritizes arcades first, consoles second, unlike NEC and Nintendo, who in the late 80s had no arcade market. Their arcade games primarily used a three button control scheme, so their controller reflected that.
