Video Game OST Appreciation Thread

Hawking:
So, it came to my attention the other day as I was leveling my Sentinel that I'd basically begun tuning out SWTOR's sound design. I'd literally heard the music that I'd once loved so many times that I simply stopped being consciously aware of it. So, I went back to the main menu, and just sat there, and listened to the main theme for a few minutes, just to appreciate it once again. SWTOR's scoring is really, really damned good.

So, it got me thinking.
Consider this the BC.org Grammys. What soundtracks from video games do you think deserve special attention?
