Not really sure why the last editor changed "composer" to "original score." I believe that the original submission of composer for the artist is correct:

I mean, doesn't "original score by" shown on the cover essentially mean composer? I don't believe having two separate, non-overlapping fields for the same information is going to be too helpful for search queries. Wouldn't it look silly have show separate classifications on the artist's page for "composer" and "original score"?

100% agree, but good luck convincing editors and staff at this point that the massive undertaking that they're months deep into at this point is a load of wasted effort.

I don't see an issue here. "Original Score" is there exactly because it appears on the cover. New roles system allows us to be very accurate, no reason to not use it.

Then maybe add the "composer" role? After all, he is the composer of this game.
