That’s one of my favourite musical moments in any game... (Destiny)

I think Salvatori and the rest of the team are doing the exact same thing that I described above. They’re not letting the player dictate the mood in that moment (which is exactly what happens when you have music that reacts directly to the player’s actions). In that point in the campaign, our guardians have suffered a crushing defeat. They’re traumatized, and lost. Those kinds of feelings are so overwhelming when they hit someone, they can feel all-consuming. You can’t escape them quickly or easily. So OF COURSE the music doesn’t fade out after a minute or two. Of course it doesn’t change to battle music when the dogs attack. Because even through the fight, or exploring the scenery, the loss of the city is all our guardian can think about.

Perhaps then I simply don't agree that the music creates the appropriate mood.
