    I could be wrong here, but as far as I know, Han, Obi-Wan, Chewie, and Lando don't have a theme of their own. Are there any others?

    Obi-Wan has the Force Theme.

    You're right about the others, though.

    I always condsidered "The Fleet Jumps Into Hyperspace" as Lando's Theme.

    Isn't that basically the Rebel Fanfare?

    I always considered the Falcon approaching CC/inside CC music as Lando's theme - the stately, proper music - I'll listen to it later and give you the timecodes.

    Just what I thought of, of course. Oh well.

    Yeah, Cloud City's theme -- which I love -- could be considered Lando's. And Han has a sort of half theme with "Han Solo and the Princess." ;) As far as I know, though, Chewie is themeless.

    One would think Chewie would have a touching theme in ESB while he rebuilds Threepio, but instead it has a quiet calm to give us a break from the panicy, over-emotional situation.

    Whenever I see Chewie shut Threepio back off, I know everything is gonna be "all right."

    Lando's theme is the Cloud City march...

    Interestingly enough, the music when they rescue Luke from the bottom of Cloud City seems to be a variation on that theme...listen closely...its not nearly as bouncy, and there's a few dramatic flares, but the notes are REAL close.

    R2D2 and C3PO don't have themes, do they?

    Not a full theme, but they do have the Droid motif from Empire.

    What about Padme and Shmi? If they do have themes, I didn't notice them.

    Padme: "Queen Amidala and the Naboo palace." Track 13 of the original TPM soundtrack.

    I'm pretty sure Shmi has a theme. Not sure, though.

    That's Padme's? Okay, I didn't really know. I can hear it in my mind now.

    You do have a theme for Han, technically. If you listen to ESB there is a theme there. Listen for it's right after Luke contacts Han on comlink on Hoth. And you here it again during the end of the asteroid chase as soon as the TIE's collide and then again in the carbon freezing chamber just as Han kisses Leia.

    But if that's Han's motif, why did we hear so little of it?

    That's the Love Theme. Shared jointly by Han & Lea. But since Leia already has a theme-I'd say the Love Theme is Han's.

    Qui-Gon does have a theme.

    It can be heard at the start of 'Anakin Is Free', during the desert duel, and in his death scene.

    I remember Qui-Gon's theme most clearly from his TPM TV commercial, "One Destiny" or something? Unfortunately it was the only one I ever saw. :(

    The stormtrooper who hit his head needs a theme ( He's a major character for me).

    LOL! Maybe that stormtrooper's theme could be the Cantina Band music. R2 and 3PO have themes which were heard in ESB and ROTJ as they trekked towards Jabba's palace.

    The theme in the second half of the 'One Destiny' trailer is actually Shmi's Theme.
