    Hmm... you must be confusing Padme's theme with something else. Padme doesn't have a theme.

    Too hard with more than 10 hours of Star Wars music on your computer, but here it goes:

    1 Imperial March
    2 Battle of Yavin
    3 Battle of Endor II
    4 Ben Kenobi's Death/Tie Fighter Attack
    5 Confrontation with Dooku&Finale
    6 Duel of the Fates
    7 Battle of Endor III
    8 Battle of Hoth
    9 Battle of the Heroes
    10 Imperial Attack

    That was......hard. There are so many more great ones like: Asteroid Field, Anakins Dark Deeds, Throne Room, Anakins Betrayal and Princess Leia's theme, etc.

    But let's be fair, the Imperial March is a classic!

    Is this a Saga question? That's how I read it:

    10) Into The Trap (VI) - I love the tension in this piece. A perfect compliment to the events on screen

    9) Luke & Leia (VI) - in the spirit of the Force theme, with a hint of turbulence in it

    8) Han Solo and the Princess/Across the Stars (V/II) - I listed them together because they are linked in a fascinating way. The first two notes of Han & Leia's theme are a major 6th interval apart, and that romance ultimately succeeded. Anakin and Padme's theme ultimately failed, and the first two notes are a minor 6th apart. It's more tragic than Han & Leia, and Williams really said a lot with that approach

    7) The Trench Run (IV) - Builds upon itself, escalating the tension, almost unbearably, before releasing in triumph and goodness in a warm, lush, D-chord. Stirs the blood wonderfully.

    6) The Emperor's Theme (VI) - Subtle but dripping with evil. I like the way it roars in his throne room while frying Luke, demonstrating that the Emporer is vastly powerful and in control - until Anakin's little surprise in the end

    5) The Asteroid Field (V) - It starts with a particularly oppressive rendition of the Imperial March and picks up speed as Han and company death race through asteroids. Guaranteed to pick up the old heart rate.

    4) Duel of the Fates (I) - emphasizes the high-stakes nature of the first lethal Jedi-Sith duel in centuries. (no blood was shed between Maul and Jinn on Tattooine)

    3) Main Theme (IV-III) - What a soaring, majestic theme. It explodes out of nowhere and primes the audience for what is to come

    2) The Imperial March (V) - Williams never got closer to the subject than he did with this piece. It is bold, relentless, and dark.

    1) The Throne Room/End Titles (IV) - the culmination of the greatest fifteen minutes in film. This is one of my favorite pieces of music anywhere

    3. The Battle Of Endor II
    4. The Hologram/Binary Sunset

    2. Battle of Endor I
    3. Victory Celebration
    4. Across the Stars
    5. Escape from Cloud City/Hyperspace
    6. Duel of the Fates
    7. Anakin's Betrayal
    8. Anakin is Free
    9. Anakin's Dark Deeds
    10. Qui-Gon's Noble End
    11. The Battle of Yavin
    12. Death of Obi-Wan/TIE Fighter Attack
    13. Jango's Escape
    14. The Forest Battle
    15. The Ice Planet Hoth
