Favorite Game OST's?

If you picked up Skyward Sword, some of them came bundled with a CD that had orchestrated versions of the most popular songs from the Zelda franchise. Here's a link to a video of one of the songs, "Ballad of the Goddess" from Skyward Sword, being recorded.
And this is a medley of some of the favorites (I absolutely love the way they did the Dark World Theme in this one!):
Here's a link to a medley of some of the songs.
Oh, and even though the one below isn't orchestrated, you just can't listen to it without getting it stuck in your head.
Halo music is pretty good too - for the first one at least, I don't really remember what the third one sounded like and I didn't like the second one because they threw in a bunch of cheesy rock songs that made it seem less like a serious game and more like "ohmygosh space marine he kills aliens a bunch". (Not that the second and third ones aren't good games.)
And Skyrim has a pretty great soundtrack. It has a lot of throwbacks to the Morrowind soundtrack in it, which I loved. I liked the Morrowind soundtrack (actually, the game as a whole) more than Oblivion, but I like Skyrim better than both of them.
The only other one I can think of is the Perfect Dark soundtrack, though that one's not orchestral at all, it's all just dark (no pun intended) sounding electronica. (Though it was an N64 game, so the sound quality is atrocious.)
Oh, and Solatorobo: Red the Hunter and Star Fox Adventures had a couple of neat songs on their soundtracks. So did World of Warcraft, especially the composition that played at the login screen back before Wrath of the Lich King was announced.
The soundtrack can often make or break a game for me. I almost quit playing Star Trek Online because some of the music that plays during a battle is just so annoying...so I just turned off the game's music and played the Zelda music listed above in the background
Erk...can't think of any more off the top of my head. I love music and video games, if you couldn't tell

lots of VGM is nice on piano.
FFX: calm before the storm and to zanarkand sound lovely as well, but nothing quite compares to the piano rendition of that Chrono Trigger song there.

Wow, been a while since a post here.... Anyways, I thought I'd share one of my recent favorite songs. I really enjoy the Phoenix wright series, and the Orchestrated music is just beautiful.
Just an example~
"...But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God."

In my case, Ar Tonelico, I have yet to play the next three games in the series, but the first one has music like you wouldn't believe. This should be for the opening to the first one:
Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of evil, but rather, Expose them.
