Let me provide some examples for each poll option:

Baten Kaitos (true mirror):
Baten Kaitos Origins (valedictory elegy):
Eternal Sonata (leap the precipice):

Golden Sun (Isaac's Battle theme):
Tales of Phantasia (Take up the cross):

Star Ocean 4 (blood on the keys):
Tales of Xillia (Jude's battle theme):

The examples I've listed above are all battle themes (since it's easiest to discern a particular style from his battle music compositions). Yes, I know this categorization isn't perfect, but it's the best I can do. Just choose as best you can. If you have a different way of categorizing Sakuraba's works, I'd love to hear of it.

I love the Tales of the Abyss soundtrack. I don't know which category that falls under but yeah. Symphonia #2, but Abyss... Damn.

Classic fantasy music all the way for me.

I for one like the adventurous songs. But the something about the mystical ones draws me it too.

Baten Kaitos. I also like Tales of Destiny's soundtrack, but I have no idea what it falls under.
