Standard battle themes usually arent that long, because battles dont last very long. If it goes on to 2 minutes before the loop you're almost never going to hear the later parts.
The important thing with a battle theme is that the first 30 seconds is something you'll be okay listening to a billion times in a row without getting sick of it. --- This post tried its hardest to be polite
Yes, Captain. Treehouse played the demo some more showing slightly different stuff.
KOTR, the battles seem kinda long (when compared to a 1 minute song, at least). Remember the gameplay trailer awhile ago? It took a pretty decent amount of time to defeat that low level. --- http://i.imgur.com/Wtzjg.jpg | http://i.imgur.com/Gjc1M.jpg http://i.imgur.com/MfpFa.jpg | http://i.imgur.com/ql0Ai.jpg
