On one hand it makes sense, as you sometimes jump in a car whilst on a hectic mission and the Jazz station is on, so having an appropriate score can enhance the experience. On the other hand, the radio does get it right sometimes. I remember doing one mission in GTAIV: LaTD and eventually being chased by the feds with Run to the hills by Iron Maiden playing. Epic!
Perhaps appropriately timed missions where certain music is playing on the radio stations would work, im with you on this as I have forgotten how many times I have thought 'how cool is this'. But then you get some funny mixes like stealing a tractor while hill billy's are trying to kill you and you got 'Hey Good Lookin' from Hank Williams playing in the background!! Sometimes the most random music makes the scene, does not always have to match the situation perfectly. 'Slow Ride' on a motor cycle or 'Free Bird' when flying a bi-plane in SA come to mind but the score in RDR and the dramatics of Max Payne 3 makes me think the missions that affect the story will be made more dramatic by a score accompaniment. But what can I say about Vice City's music, this was almost perfect.
