The Music (Gaming)

I'm pretty sure this is the most sophisticated music system I've ever seen in a game.

Definitely a good change from where SE was a decade and a half ago.

FFXIII has an extremely good soundtrack, and it's well-used most of the time. But its visual language was definitely outgrowing the music system, which largely just uses per-area loops and crude fadeouts.
(XIII-2 was somewhat more interesting, with stuff like alternate versions of tracks that dynamically cut in when enemies are present in the overworld.)
