While I don't mind the MK soundtracks, I don't think there's any
excuse to not have any music design that's new and fresh. True, cost
is an issue, and if that's the case then.. well, life's life. But SF
and soul calibur have had quite a few games, and each game has had
drastically different tracks, or remixes of tracks from previous
games. I think the MK music is good, but there's always room with
improvement for music... even in terms of capcom and namco titles.
But we get what we get.. and at the end of the day, I still think
it'll be a good game.

Well, I do not believe it is so much laziness as it has to do with
cost. It costs serious money to hire musical talent to do music tracks
for the background and even though these companies have millions to
spend on development after creating several Mortal Kombat games etc
they probably have a large library of music used and unused to select
from cutting production costs by several thousand in the process. So
what you see as simple laziness probably and most likely has to do
with the bottom line somewhere. It also could be that the musician
they hired has run out of new ideas for music to give the game an all
new fresh original sound each and every game. Thus you get that MK
design baked and rebaked over and over again you were talking about.
