Shadow of the Colossus. It's a game of boss battles, but these two are my favourite bits of music of them all:

I'd love to go back and relive the time I first played this game, saw the Colossi and heard these themes.

Streets Of Rage has some awesome Boss music!

R-Type is also fantastic.

Altered Beast and Golden Axe both have some amazing Boss music as well! :)

Surprised shadow of the colossus hasn't even mentioned yet. The themes just add to the whole experience ten fold!
