I eventually found the problem. It seems that my USB hub had some sort incompatibility with OSX. I tried a different USB hub (not a super cheap import this time) and everything appears to work.
People are yelling thanks for this solution: https://lbarclay.wordpress.com/2009/01/29/macbook-pro-trakpad-and-keyboard-not-working/
It seams like you have some kind of incapability between your mouse and computer. Try with enabling right clicking on both your trackpad (if you have one built in) and your mouse from Mac OS Settings. Also, if you have the possibility try with an another mouse and see if it work. Try googling your mouse model and Mac OS problems or something like that.
With some inspiration from Mateusz Szlosek answer, I downloaded MagicPrefs to hook up Two Finger Click to ⌘ CMD+Left Click. It does pretty much exactly what I want, the fact that I don't lose focus is actually pretty useful to. Edit: already switched it to Three Finger Click because Two finger click gives to many false positives :)
You can ⌘ CMD+Click on pause button. By default ⌘ CMD+Click does not activate window under the click.

BetterTouchTool allows you to program a response to various gestures on the Magic Mouse, Trackpads, and other input devices. Middle-click, and Middle-tap on the Magic Mouse are both available.
MagicPrefs seems like the only solution currently available to enable a third button on a Magic Mouse. From their website: MagicPrefs is a free application for OS X which aims to improve the functionality and configuration options of the Apple Magic Mouse, Magic Trackpad and the MacBook glass trackpad. It features the ability to bind a variable ...
It has also been an issue for me, along with the mouse inertia for the mouse itself. This worked for me: Open terminal, and paste this in. What it does is turn the scroll wheel scaling off. defaults write .GlobalPreferences com.apple.scrollwheel.scaling -1 If you want to turn the mouse inertia off, paste this in: defaults write .GlobalPreferences ...
