I am on a retro gaming music binge

And here is one that really stands out: The Settlers theme.

Even on MIDI the mediaeval folk theme comes through so strongly. In fact, it might well be the MIDI that makes it sound so magical.

It’s also incredibly influential. I know of two black metal bands who have used the main theme (starts at 1:31) as interludes.
