    Main theme for SWTOR is fucking epic! Amazing work on the score too. Great composer.

    This guy should do every Star Wars game from now on, KOTOR2 was epic, but TFU I and II are just fantastic!

    This dude's fucking underrated. His music is off the chain. His work on KoTOR II sends me into raptures without a shadow of doubt. Mark Griskey is very talented and is worthy of attention.

    Up to now, the KotOR 2 Soundtrack is definitely unbeaten in it's awesomness. Let's have a confident look upon the Star Wars: The Old Republic one...

    I so do love the fact that Griskey is the leading composer for the upcoming mmorpg Star Wars: The Old Republic. He is a true genius.

    In my opinion Griskey composed the best soundtrack for games. His music is better than Soule's music in KotOR- IMHO more atmospherical.

    Juno Eclipse/Finale is beautiful. Juno's theme is very much in the same style as Han Solo and the Princess from Episode V. You'd swear it is another Williams love theme. It begins with a quiet, shy statement, similar to Princess Leia's Theme. But upon its recapitulation, it sounds more like the Solo/Leia theme, as it becomes much more grand and flowing. The final chord sounds like it could lead directly in to the End Credits we all know and love, but it stops there.
