I hope that the Page Fletcher Robocop screaming icon stays right where it is! Truly awesome clip!
Anyway, I wonder if Robocop's arcade game didn't show up in Robocop 2 because the arcade game featured the Poledouris theme and the score in Robocop 2 was done my Leonard Rosenman. Not that there was any conflict of interest there, Orion would have had the rights since they made both movies, but just a thought.

Interesting point, but ultimately the music from the arcade game would have just been edited out, as the 'Kid Goes Wild' song is playing in the background all throughout that scene. You notice there's no BGM from any of the other games, after all. Indeed the only sounds you hear from the game machines in that sequence is some FX sounds, of which I'm not sure actually apply to the particular games anyway. Sounds get mixed/dubbed/re-recorded in films all the time.

I think it was probably done for fourth wall reasons as was said, though as I previously pointed out, that really isn't as much a concern as one would think. Whatever though.

Another interesting tidbit about the Robocop 2 Arcade game:
Did you know that the Japanese version of the arcade game starts off with cutscences and a mini level from the first movie? You get to start off by going to the top of the OCP building, fight off guards and an ED-209 and then save the Old Man from Dick Jones before the opening title screen replays and then you start off in stage 1. Its too bad that it didn't get put into the Robocop 2 game in the US. I can't read the Japanese captions, but I am excited to play this mini level. I wonder if there are any other extras? Does anyone know?
