Check out these two tunes, one from Shadowcaster, one from Realms of Arkania: Star Trail. Both share a similar pattern: low strings, a spacy voice/horn, followed by pizzicato. Did one composer steal from the other, or is this some classical tune that I am unfamiliar with?

Both games were composed by Germans... I think? (Schaefgen I think is German, as well as Henkel). Maybe it's a German thing?

Schaefgen is not German, and I don't think that stealing songs is a "German thing".

I know, it was just a joke. ;)

Still, it may well be a coincidence; after all, so much music has already been composed that you need to try very hard to write something that will not sound like another pre-existing track. And even then, it'll sound like something you haven't heard before but that already existed :lol:
Edit, as the fact that they're both German could make sense: do people have music lessons at school? If yes, they may well have studied the same things and received the same influences.

They are really similar. I am not surprised I guess. As they say great minds think alike. I heard some more similar melodies, after I get to my Pattaya estate I will post some more here which in my opinion were stolen from each other.
