So I finished it but there is something I still dont fully understand, what the hell happened to Nathans wife? 
 
And also, this game had awesome music

Her mind was inserted into the bionic arm wich is so completely and utterly ridiculous you have to love it. 
You´re basically playing the entire game hanging from your wife. Oh god it cracks me up.

Yeah, the whole thing behind bionic technology is that loved ones are used as catalysts to sync with the host. 
 
And yes, I agree this game had awesome music.

Most definatly! 
 
They did the awesome thing of taking one main 'theme' so to speak and then using variations of it throughout depending on the tone- all the games with the best music (Metal gear, Final fantasy) do it, and for all this games shortcomings? 
Bionic commando was worth it for the music alone

Now it kinda makes sense in a ridiculous way

Yeah, I got that the wife is in the arm.
Right at the end, in his memory, she says: "I'll always be at your side."
And near the end, when you hack a terminal-thingy, you find a report that states how Spencer sat there thinking of his wife, and also sat there, staring at his missing arm, both with the same sad look.
 
I'm guessing that he subconsciously knew she was in there.
