-Jason, who just rememered one more - the Throne Room motif, which reappears in the end credits and in ROTJ when Lando and crew come out of hyperspace.

The Force Theme is by far my favorite. To me, it embodies the Star Wars movies moreso than the Main Title.

It seems that in the original trilogy, the Force theme is played with the memories of the fallen jedi in mind. The new trilogy seems to focus on the force theme as a regular motif. Maybe it's just me, or possibly JW is running out of variations to use for it.

Definitely the Force theme. I truly believe it's my single most favorite theme ever...ALMOST beaten by Superman, but dammit...the Force theme can be sad, desperate, exciting, romantic, scary, suspenseful, dramatic, triumphant....EVERYTHING.

I vote for "The Force Theme", the emotionally strongest theme I have ever heard!

But naturally I love all Star Wars themes :mrgreen:

I have never heard about Shmi's Theme and the second droid theme in ROTJ. Can somebody tell me where can I find them on soundtracks? Thanks a lot.

:mrgreen: to The Imperial March at 3/4 volume on my Pioneer system, nearly waking the dead.

I played Aboard the Executor(ESB,unused in the movie),the loudest,most bombastic version of the Imperial March in my appartment very loud once.Someone called the cops on me and I got a noise warning.

Yep, I've already had 2 noise warnings about my blasting music. Both times it was ESB playing. One more and I'm kicked out. :music:

I think I'll be using the old headphones for awhile.

:thumbup: The Death Star/The Stormtroopers: ANH
