Well, music is an important aspect of the gameplay too. I can't imagine you playing RPG games with heavy metal on the background... The music is meant to make you feel you're inside the game, to inspire you, and to make the athmosphere (sp?) better.

For example, both Mental Institution's and Grand Cathedral's music is very, very athmospheric. If you replaced those tracks with generic heavy metal, no doubt it would make you feel less inspired.

Depends on the game, of course. For online coop and DM, it's okay to have some music on the background. But I would never, ever play a SP game without listening to the game's music as well.

And if you review a game or a map/mod, you should give some points for good music as well. Good game/map/mod may have bad music, bad game/map/mod may have nice music, etc...
