    Most people don't know what a cue is. To complicate matters, cue lists aren't even fully available for The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Return of the Jedi.

    Hehehe...:p

    EDIT: And I've yet to understand the greatness of the Padme's Destiny Force Theme. It's basically the same as Qui-Gon's funeral. The Imperial March with Qui-Gon's funeral was good though.

    They are listed that way because that's how most people recognize them. The cue that appears in that particular track, as it were. As you indicated above, we don't have complete cue lists for the entire saga.

    The force theme defintley, whenever I hear it I get chills. But all John Williams music has that effect on me but the best theme is the Force theme

    Han/Leia love theme for me... it is just ahead of the other two love themes in terms of musical greatness. My favourite theme would have been Luke and Leia if it wasn't for Clash of the lightsabers, which features the Han/Leia love theme at its best.

    I like Han Solo and The Princess. For me, the music has this wonderful romantic feeling to it, and when I hear it played, it takes me into the movie.

    Picking a favorite theme is a very difficult task since all the themes are wonderful, but here are my top five

    1 Across The Stars
    2 Luke's Theme
    3 Battle of the Heroes
    4 Leia's Theme
    5 The Imperial March

    I also loved " Anakins Betrayal" and several other pieces of music from the saga, but I wasn't sure if they counted as themes so I didn't include them

    Luke & Leia's theme from ROTJ really does it for me. (wistful sigh)[face_batting]

    I'd be inclined to say you could look at this as a theme because
    not only does it cover Order 66 (where he betrays the Jedi)
    but it also underscores the conversation
    between Anakin and Padme on Mustafar where he betrays her too.
    I LOVE hearing it start right when she say's "You're breaking my heart...."
    It adds so much emotion to the scene.

    I really like Anakin vs. Obi-Wan, which is just like a faster, more emotional, Battle of the Heroes. I also like Across the Stars for some bizzarre reason and Anakin's Betrayal because it's sort of emotional.

    I remember the first time I listened to the A New Hope/End Credits, and the way the Throne Room was done...the slower tempo and greater emphasis...it made my eyes water up. The whole thing is such a wonderful sign-off.

    If I recall correctly, the piece you are referring to was recorded some 8 years before ROTS.

    I hate to spoil the fun. but some of those are not themes, they are tracks, and they should not be referred to as songs.
