Amiga games with good menus/shops

Hello people,

Another strange/crap request from KG!

I'm interested in any Amiga games which had memorable/good looking shops/menus, as I'm thinking about the in possibly of including a couple of different skins for my front end and thought the menus would suit the front end perfectly.

Examples of what I mean:

Xenon 2:


Chaos Engine:

I like music in the menus. Such as for Dogs Of War in the gun selection screen, or Eye Of the Beholder 1 and 2 in the character selection screen.

But Xenon 2 looks cooler, even though it does not sound it.

Not as interesting as Xenon II or Gods but the Blood Money shop is ok:



Also, doesn't Son Shu-Shi have some kind of shop? Couldn't find a screen shot though...

That looks ugly DamienD! Actually, now that I look at it more gives me the nice feeling of good old workbench 1.3!

well... Gods and Speedball 2 go along the ones you mention, but you know that already.
this is not an easy one! the others that i can think of are:

Perihelion (menu)
Heimdall 1 and 2 (shops)
Alien Breed 1, 2 and add ons (menu)

the best i can think of is Perihelion though, and even so, it is hard to adapt as it rely heavily on the graphics.

Blood Money?!! Are you insane? Looks awful!

Gods and Alien Breed are both sensible choices... although Alien Breed would be a bit... green.

Hmm..

some good examples, thanks everyone.

Some of them simply won't lend themselves to a games frontend but others can easily be recreated and still be easily identified as being from the original games.

Well, the SWOS menu is pretty much perfection.
