His [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nitJd6cIXU theme]] for MagnificentBastard Xizor is just the tip of the iceberg. The ''awesome'' iceberg.

* ''Secret Weapons Over Normandy'' had some of the most epic music ever put in a flight sim outside of an ''AceCombat'' game. It would not be hard to imagine it in a ''Franchise/StarWars'' or ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' film.

* The iMUSE interactive MIDI system definitely proved its worth by using a format that is generally regarded as having lackluster sampling in the games that made use of it, and the soundtracks themselves certainly contributed to the experience as well. ''VideoGame/DarkForces'' boasts a remarkable score all around, with noteworthy tracks played during cutscenes that show Kyle in transit to Anteevy/escaping from his captor's ship or making his escape after blowing something up.
