featured dynamically changing themes (like in Gruntilda's Lair), as far as I remember.

The variations of the main menu theme I am talking about can be heard when setting up the options, such as whether to allow infinite ammo and whatnot before loading up a chapter.

My favorite version of the main theme is probably Ada's, with Jake's as a close second. The lonely, slow pricks of the acoustic guitar strings in Jake's personify the first two chapters pretty well. As for Ada's...her's just sounds cool. I like how the tune seems to echo.

I'm pretty sure that Conker's bad fur day did it too and probably more games after that one. I didn't noticed the music in this game, the only one that made an impression on me was the horribly inappropriate credits song in Jake's campaign.

First half of your post made me think you knew what I was talking about and the second half made me question that notion.

I'm talking strictly about the main menu theme and how it changes depending on whose campaign you're about to boot up whilst waiting for a partner or adjusting your session's settings.

Conker is also a Rare game. I think it did do that in the main hub.

I know what you are talking about the,that's why I mentioned Conker, the overworld theme changes to some variations of the same song with different flavor depending on the setting of the area you are in. The second half of my post was just to state that I really didn't noticed the music in this game at all, except for the awful credits music.

EDIT: A bunch of Rare games do it, in Donkey Kong 64 I remember the music in Angry Aztec to be more quiet in tunnels, in Diddy Kong Racing the music for the character select screen changes depending on the guy that's being highlighted, etc.

It's a shame that RE6 also failed in the music department, that's usually the one thing capcom is still good at.

Yeah, Rare was the master. The Diddy Kong Racing soundtrack was legendary.

And yeah...when I first realized it was Jake's voice actor singing that song in his credits, I was like o_0.

None of the RE games are really known for their music. Revelations has the best music in the franchise, but that's not saying much. RE6 has the second best, but it's truly only the second RE (after Revelations) with an emphasis on music.

The others just had catchy tunes for certain areas few and far between, such as safe rooms and typewriter areas in REmake and RE4, respectively.

Even things like Sonic Generations and Rayman Origins change the theme remixes.

It's still better than 6, shoot RE5 has more memorable music than 6

here is some music good RE music throughout the years, in all honesty the only music I remember from RE6 was when Chris and Piers are in the elevator near the end.
