Final Fantasy XII - Esper Battle [full]
I've always loved the music for the Final Fantasy series of games and have bought the soundtracks to four of them: 6, 7, 10, and 12. In the latest game, 12, battles with phantom beasts/espers are scored by a nice epic sounding piece that really puts you into the fight. I never recognized it as the battle theme for espers until trying numerous times to beat the Exodus esper. It takes place atop a mountain. The battle starts with the music stopping and the camera panning up. You see a giant floating down slowly out of the clouds. As he descends you get the first full glimpse of him and realize the magnitude of what's ahead. At that moment the battle theme starts. Gotta love it!
