Pretty sure the graphics to game don't justify the quality of play of the storyline. I get the same response a lot as well. Its cool if you don't like the pixel art style but it doesn't mean it's bad.
Why do you feel lame for mentioning it? I was a pokemon fanatic when I was a little kid so they bring back a lot of good memories. I already posted floaroma town's theme in this thread.I feel lame for mentioning this, but I never get tired of the OST from the Pokemon games. Especially for the GBA games.
It's a part of an album called "Touhou En Strike" by Cool&Create, a circle that mainly dabbles in arrangements of Touhou game music. This circle's style is very upbeat. I recently mail-ordered another album of them, "Touhou Strike", which contains some of the songs of the former-mentioned album, but sadly not "Night of Nights".
