I completely disagree that music is NOT a vital component of the product. Ok this might be a subjective thing, but to name one example the first Diablo wouldnt have achieved cult status without the brilliant soundtrack...

That's fair, and as someone who's played music for 20 years I can relate. But what I mean by 'vital' is that the game can still function without that element. Diablo still works as a game without the music. The music absolutely adds to the experience, but it wouldn't actually break the game if it wasn't there.

In film, the composer usually comes in to do the soundtrack for a few months near the end of production. He doesn't work the entire length of the movie. That's why Hans Zimmer does 4-5 scores per year. I imagine it must be the same for game production. So, I wonder what other duties he had. Sound design?
