I agree. The lack of music is quite a letdown. The little that I do hear is great.

Exact same problem here. I feel completely lied to after all the years of waiting for this game and was PROMISED wonderful music. Watching the Star Wars films over the years the music is one of the biggest aspects of the Star Wars universe. I was completely dissopointed that about 95% of the time I have no music. None. Not while questing, not while exploring, the only time I have EVER heard music was when fighting a rare boss or completing a CLASS quest. Stupid because now I am finding out that all the music we heard in all the gameplay demos over the years was EDITED in. PLEASE, OH PLEASE give us music.

I ~LOVE~ the music in this game. What baffles my mind, is why there is so little of it.

Here is what I'd like to see:

*Every zone has it's own background soundtrack. Something that fits the environment, but is classic Star Wars.

*Give different quest areas a different background theme. For example, I go into spooky warehouse, play spooky warehouse theme; walk into an area in the middle of a war, play middle of a war theme.

*When I fight Gold+ mobs, play a battle theme. Mobs that would require a group should have an even better, adrenaline-pumping battle theme.

If you want an example, look at FFXI. For everything that game did wrong, it got the music absolutely right.

Yep been asking for this since beta. The disconnection in music takes all the emotion out of the game. We need a check box option or something to loop it. Its ruining my immersion!!! lol

Yeah really--Bioware did make some *just-odd* choices, including what *feels* like almost no music. Just hearing a pretty little piano theme on Hoth made me happy.

You've got six movies of music, and the 2 KOTOR games. Appreciate callbacks to KOTOR music and the "sad" theme from Episode 3, but sound design is "???" elsewhere.

I mean this is beautiful, epic music for a video game, probably part of the reason KOTOR and games like "Ocarina of Time" resonate so much in players' memories.

TOR's music is so sporadic and underplayed, it's baffling.
