They were definitely used after that battle when Tigh re-boards Galactica and looks at Adama. The crowd is cheering for Adama for winning the battle but Adama knows what Tigh has lost and bagpipes play the same theme as the above but in a melancholy tone to note the juxtaposition between Tigh and Adama's emotions. Its one of the best uses of music I can think of in TV and its stayed with me years after watching BSG.

The Witcher 3 has some pretty fantastic music. Ladies of the Woods is among my favorites. It's among the most ominous and foreboding sounding music I think I've heard since Diablo 1.
I edit my posts a lot and sometimes the words wrong order words appear in sentences get messed up.

The Halo franchise has had excellent original sountracks - or at least I've ended up listening to Halo OST albums many times over!

Being on a long drive alone in the middle of the night and listening to the Halo 3 OST, especially the first few tracks, is one of my calmest memories.

Why didn't anyone tell me sooner how AMAZING the soundtrack to Nier is? That game completely flew under the radar for me, but man, that music is pretty incredible and stands up well on its own.

I enjoyed the Life Is Strange soundtrack.

unless I missed it, no one has brought up the Bioshock soundtrack yet

Welcome to Rapture and The Ocean on His Shoulders alone capture the tone and message of the game better than any synopsis could ever hope to

and then there's Cohen's Masterpiece

which is what madness sounds like

and all of that isn't even touching the sequels

I had not heard Monty on the Run before. That was amazing.

I watched https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g069AFLtL40 once before, but it didn't sound quite as good there. I guess that must be using the Spectrum version's soundtrack.

I'm a moderate-to-huge fan of the dexterous fingers of Taylor Davis, who's all up inz the violinz when it comes to solo string-based videocomputer game covers. I feel her cover of Chance Thomas's Theme for Rohan captures the goosebumps often reserved for that spine-tingling bit in Howard Shore's Riders of Rohan that everyone remembers.

Rare made some games for Nintendo. They had sweet tunes.

Banjo-Kazooie was the first game I played to have music that SUBTLY CHANGED WHEN YOU WALKED AROUND A LEVEL and it was awesome.

Jet Force Gemini had a magnificent soundtrack that I occasionally listen to even today.

Star Fox Adventures was an okay-ish game, but it had some good songs.

Man, I loved those games. Oh and they also made some other games I didn't play or don't remember the soundtrack of.
