How come only the first two games are represented here?

I can take care of them, though I only played the first several hours of the second game and now have to go to the bed.

From the standpoint of submission which is opened for the limited members, I think this franchise may reemphasize what's problem with our current product system. When an album has music from both Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, for example, we'd usually add the two name to the product field, but once we link both products to the their own pages,

The only solutions we have are create its own page for Final Mix or linking only one release (perhaps the first Japanese release). I'm not a big fan of the former, so perhaps will go with the latter.

Oops, I was wrong. Since Final Mix games seem to have been only released in Japan, there's no way we have more than one Final Mix release.

Another problem however is how to handle Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix+. It combines Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, and maybe I should split it into two.

Cool, thanks. I'm finally making time to delve into the Kingdom Hearts soundtracks and this will help. I was just a little surprised to see this franchise unfinished since it's so popular.

@illidan: will you stop editing the date?
if I put 2004 that's because the franchise is linked to square enix only
it won't make any sense to have a 2002 franchise linked to a 2003 meta-franchise because KH1 isn't square enix
and also, splitting the franchise to have square and square enix won't make any sense either (because having 1 game for KH square will be pointless)

so I use 2004 as start date for the KH square enix franchise

The franchise should have the correct date, not something made up for a workaround.

As splitting the franchise is a bad idea like you said, then the only option left is linking just the games, which is what I just did.

"Final Mix+" is just the name of a package, much like the various names for budget rereleases.
