Default My favorite game scores (was: Top Ten RPG Composers)

I didn't want to hijack the old thread, so...

I am still not quite sure how it could happen, considering that RPG is perhaps my favorite genre and that music became about the most important aspect of games for me, but there it is. One problem that I did identify is that most RPG composers that I know seem to only have one great RPG title with the rest somehow disqualified (not great, not RPG, not published...). (Another problem is that I only have a very slight in console game musics - for some reason most of the titles, including most of the fan favorites, don't do a thing to me.)

The Dig, Outcast, Outlaws, Lost Eden, Monkey Island II, Witchwood (formally a game score, but the game was cancelled before it was finished), Kessen II, Soul of the Ultimate Nation, Shadow of the Colossus...
