I have no clue who Mark Grisky is or how good he is so I had to vote between the other two.

 

I enjoyed the musical scores in KOTOR, so Soule did a good job, but John Williams is the master, so obviously I would pick him.

 

This poll might have been better if you'd left Williams out of it.

Now that's a shame: all of those links seem to produce an error  :(

Thanks for the link.

 

Judging by his samples, one can say that he's competent, nothing spectacular, but competent.

Soule was a mix, to me.  Some of his stuff wasn't competent, some of it was really extraordinary.  The sappy, "Bastila" theme comes to mind. 

 

 

I thought that the Bastila theme was the best piece of music in the entire game, especially when you reach the summit of the Rakattan temple and it kicks in. I also liked the Sith Theme, the Old Republic Theme, and The Dantooine Theme. If Soule was lacking anywhere it was with the battle music. The battle music on Kashyyyk is annoying at best and brings forth visions of Ewoks dancing in my head. The rest of it, with the exception of the final battle music, is all just kinda meh.

Exactly

 

 

And John Williams scores as of late have been pretty forgettable.

 

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban had it's moments, but over all it was a terribly annoying soundtrack to listen to. AOTC was nothing but a rehash of TPM score. Didn't George and John know that people would recognize the same musical cues in the score?

 

Other Williams efforts have been boring rehashes of earlier scores. Some scores sound like Hook, others sound like he didn't really give that much of a creative effort. The last score Williams created that I truly enjoyed was Minority Report. A.I was excellent, so I was really dissapointed with Harry POA. Catch Me If You Can and The Terminal? Sorry I picked them up. Lately Williams scores sound like they are being written for a Tom and Jerry cartoon.

 

Don't misunderstand me, Williams is one of my all time favs, but lately his scores leave much to be desired.
