What is your favourite song from KotOR? I don't need names, just the area the song is from. My favourites are (in order): Malak's theme (Duel to the Death), Bastila's theme (Bastila [duh]), and the character generation screen (Knights of the Old Republic theme). How about you?

I really, really love the 'Ruins of the Jedi Enclave' theme that you get during KOTOR II when you arrive on Dantooine (again) and enter the Upper Levels.

Other than that, nothing stands out, but it is all fantastic.

Bastila and Carth have the best themes. I'm also a big fan of the music in just about every cantina.

Ya, that music is cool, but I'm talking about KotOR only, not TSL.

I'll be more careful next time then....................................

I dunno. All the music in KotOR was epic munchies, though I always loved the under toned music that played during the first few Malak scenes (the Revan and Malak flashback scene, and when we first see the Leviathan). Also, the music when we first encounter the StarForge was absolutely awesome.

10-02-2005, 03:30 PM
The Hrakert Rift battle music.
The Starforge battle music.
The Ahto City battle music.

10-02-2005, 03:34 PM
Heh, yeah. I had forgot about the rift battle theme. Total "Jaws" flashbacks there .

10-02-2005, 03:45 PM
I edited my post.
BTW, i know its not KOTOR music but I like the Bando gora theme from SW Bounty Hunter (another game with Jeremy Soule's music).

My favorite music of all time?
Probably the "Moiety Theme" and "Gehn's Office" from the game Riven.

10-02-2005, 04:32 PM
I really liked the Forge Battle music.

The Doctor
10-02-2005, 06:54 PM
The Star Forge Music was definately awesome.
I also want to make an edit to my above comment:
I also like the Dantooine Music. It's peacful, and it feels like Star Wars music to me more than anything else.

10-02-2005, 06:57 PM
The music that plays during the duel with Malak is definitely one of my all-time favorite Star Wars songs.

10-02-2005, 08:38 PM
Probably the music that is playing when you contact General Dodonna near the end at the star forge, and I also loved that kind of peaceful, quite yet kind of mysterious (I don't know how to describe it, if you know what I am talking about, good for you) music out in the grove in dantooine, when your not in a battle.

The Doctor
10-02-2005, 09:09 PM
The one while talking to Dodanna is the Knights of the Old Republic theme.

10-03-2005, 08:58 AM
I like the music when you find out the secert and when you becoming a Jedi also the the fight with Malak

One of my favorite pieces of music in the first Knights was, when you're at Taris and inside your apartment. It was like a remix of some music from the movies, though I can't place it. But, both games have great music.

^Ya, that's Bastila's theme, which is amazing!^

Thanks, just makes me appreciate Bastila even more.

10-04-2005, 05:56 PM
The Malak them song and the Malak battle song.
Those were awesome ^.^

I also liked the temple summit song (which I think is also Bastila's theme song).
It kinda reminded me of the K2 Jedi Temple Upper Level song which was very mellow yet sad at the same time.

The Doctor

Ya, the temple summit was Bastila's theme. And you're right, the Jedi Theme from TSL was amazing, too.

Bastila's theme was cool, but for some reason i just love the music when your walking around Taris upper city, it just fits the scenery so well

10-05-2005, 01:29 PM
By the way, there is also some really cool KOTOR music that is not used in the game, e.g. Carth's theme. Definitely worth listening to!

10-05-2005, 01:33 PM
Where is Carth's theme and how can I listen to it?

Bastilla's theme is my favorite all the way! It is what I think of in terms of music and KOTOR.

10-05-2005, 01:53 PM
It is located in the streammusic folder (just like the other music files; the filename is mus_theme_carth.wav) AND sounds cool :cool:

10-05-2005, 02:11 PM
MdKnightR: you'll find information about sound files in this thread: http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=143421 (check the sound /music section)

The Doctor

Carth's theme is used in-game. It's played during the battle with the Sith at the Star Forge if the Republic is winning, I think. I know I've heard it before, I just can't remember exactly when in the game.

I really like the music at the main menu. Very dark and mysterious!! Anyone know where I can buy a soundtrack of KOTOR and TSL music anywhere?

The Doctor
10-06-2005, 01:50 PM
No, there is no official soundtrack. You have to use a sound tool to extract them from the game, but you can only use them for personal use, as it's illegal to post them anywhere or sell them anywhere.

The dantooine music from the Grove/Sandral/Matale Grounds ;)
Can't remember any other music atm...

The Sith Theme from KOTOR, followed By the Knights of the Old Republic Theme, plus several others; Dxun and Telos battle musics from KOTOR II. The Jedi Theme is also one of my favorites.

10-14-2005, 02:12 PM
Is there a Knights of the Old Republic theme? Which file do you mean?

The Doctor
10-14-2005, 04:08 PM
The song played while you select your character is the Knight of the Old Republic theme.

10-15-2005, 07:48 AM
I thought that was called "Revans theme". I don't have the game installed now so I can't check, but I could have sworn it was the last time I dug around in that folder.
The Malak them song and the Malak battle song.
These & the above mentioned song are mine.

The Doctor
10-15-2005, 09:07 AM
^No, Revan technically doesn't have a theme song, but one couold argue that the song played as you're talking to Malak is Revan's theme, but I beleive it's Malak's theme.

10-15-2005, 05:32 PM
Just for the record, here's a listing of the mus_ files in my streammusic directory. Annoyingly, I can't play any of them, and will apparently need to reinstall the windows versions. There's a lot more in that directory than just these files, but thee's nothing named after Revan at all.

Just discovered the reason why I never noticed the music in KotOR, too. I always play with the music off ;-). Oh well, gives me an excuse to play again. Like I needed one.
