and add some more themes from the movies. I think I've heard "imperial march" ONCE.
a really good remix of "battle of heroes" ONCE while fighting an elite mob on my sith warrior on korriban. srsly bioware ..
I really have no issues with the no music sometimes, I find it adds to certain things. but not everything. Some places more would be good.

Also the Imperial March is the theme of the Galactic Empire. Which does not exist right now, I've never heard it in this game and I don't think it belongs here. If you can point out where it was I would like to check it out however as I do love the song. Droid Invasion plays ALOT in high level zones during combat, Corellia especially, and other key mark story points. I hear it more on Empire side but have heard it once or twice on my Trooper.

Seems like all we're getting is: " Interesting idea. Let me give it some thought!"...

@up when more people will ask BioWare will maybe deliver.

/me signs

One part of Star Wars that makes it so great is music. Scene when Luke looks at the two suns of Tatooine wouldn't be so epic without wonderful soundtrack or attack on the death star without musis wouldn't feel right.

SWTOR needs loop music option for the greater enjoyment!

Also said this numerous times: The music I hear is pretty close to radio silence.
Wasted potential to make people immerse in the game.

It takes nerves of steel to watch this: The story of stuff (21min) Only the bravest will withstand these vids, the rest won't endure. HOME (90min)

Yes yes yes YES! Please put this into the game it would make it so much better. Also maybe add a little music player in the game so you can choose which ones you want to play and make a playlist of it?

+1. I don't know why I didn't notice this before, but lately I seem to have stopped music all the time. Makes running flashipoints again kind of boring when you aleady know the story but don't even have great music motivating you along.

Was it always like this? Or did this start at some point in the recent past?

The dynamic combat music doesn't even kick in half of the time during Strong, Elite etc. fights. I think music is very important when it comes to setting the tone and immersion in general. Games and movies. This definitely is a missed opportunity and big mistake on their part. John Williams' epic orchestral soundtracks are unmatched imo. Hell, i was even able to tolerate and finish watching the prequels thanks to his soundtracks. No, i am not comparing the game to that tripe but increasing the frequency of his music would definitely improve the overall fun factor for me.

I guess this will have to suffice for now
