Music in TOR.

Music in any Star Wars game/movie is just one of the main elements that make it so dam awesome.. and I barely hear any in TOR.

Unless of course im fighting an "Epic" enemy or a boss, but even then sometimes it never starts. Venturing to a new area or a cutscene will have it's own theme, but it fades out after 1 min. Lame.

Bioware, you're killing me. Is there a music disabled button somewhere I can change? Or am I just screwed out of questing to the dull silence?

Yeah it's a shame there is no loop music option.
Help me, Bio-Ware Support; you're my only hope.

I'm a disappointed the OST that came with the Collector's Edition doesn't have all the tracks....or like any of the planet tracks.

I want to listen to awesome music. I would wish for a "Radio" option you could carry around and change the tunes to whatever. Ahh... dreams.

If id known the ost was in the collectors edition I'd have bought it. If i could I'd leave the character selection screen on all night and is sleep like a baby. Probably have some sweet epic dreams too :P

I too was disappointed with the OST. Then again, the majority of the music is from KOTOR, KOTOR 2, or the movies.

As for the topic itself, there was never a break in music during fights, and on rare occasion would there be no music outside of fights. Dialogue generally didnt have music, unless something was actually happening.

Look at movies though (the star wars movies in particular). There was ALOT of music. Did it play for 2 hours? Nope. Most music was during fights, montages, scene cuts, important dialogue, the same places music is found in TOR.

They did an excellent job with music cuing, and if your having problems, its more than likely an unintended bug.

I don't think it's a bug I think they simply did not put enough music in the game.

I disagree completely. I dont remember the number exactly, but they produced hundreds of hours of ORIGINAL music for this game. Original. Thats music not from previous works, which is played quite a bit. A hundred hours alone is inhuman.

Like I said, I hear music most of the time, and when I dont, its when I dont want/care if music is playing; its not fitting for what Im doing or the scene I'm watching.

Should music be playing when Qyzen is telling me about the excruciating trandoshan rite of molting his skin? No. Marrying Nadia? Absolutely. Guess which of those two scenes played music.

While on a planet, music everywhere. Going to Nar Shaddaa put me in a state of nostalgia for KOTOR 2 so hard I almost dozed off, simply from the music alone.

Music issues are reported and known, if you arent hearing enough, its probably a bug, or your weird and simply want music to be playing all the time regardless of the circumstance. If the former, file a report. If the later, get a playlist going on your Ipod. In either case, stop complaining.
