    TESB for me. I often listen to it in the car on the way to the office, especially in the winter for whatever reason. I've been looking for it and RotJ on vinyl (as I have an original pressing of STAR WARS and my American obsessive compulsive consumerism commands me to complete the OT).

    I gotta go with Return of the Jedi. SO many great tracks on that one.

    - The Sail Barge
    - The Death of Yoda
    - The Emperor's Theme
    - Luke and Leia (A very ignored track IMO)
    - Into the Trap
    - Leia's News/Light of the Force
    - Victory Celebration (a huge step up from Yub Nub IMO)

    And the track that REALLY puts this one on top has got to be "The Dark Side Beckons" (the final battle between Luke and Darth Vader.) This track is quite possibly my favorite piece of music in any film ever. Every time I hear it, I get chills.

    Revenge. The score for that movie was dark in a way that not even Empire could compare. Battle of the Heroes sealed the deal for me.

    There's no seventh option on this poll for a six-way tie?

    ESB, just has some of the most memorable music for me, ROTS would have been my second choose.

    It's a close call between Empire and Menace, but I'm going with Menace.

    Shadows of the Empire should have been included.

    Return of the Jedi

    It's got some of the best emotional music of the whole saga such as Light of the Force and the Luke and Leia-theme. Also, I love how Williams' soundtrack perfectly tells the story. Then there's the Battle of Endor. Absolutely great themes!

    I would be lying to myself if I said ESB, but I DO think it has some really nice themes. No, my favorite is ROTS. It's also the one I enjoy listening to the most.

    The Phantom Menace. Just an incredible range of pieces, from "Anakin's Theme," which is wonderfully peaceful and hopeful while offering just a hint of the dissonance to come, to the epic sweep of "Duel of the Fates."

    Had to give it to Phantom Menance. That was an amazing execution of Duel of Fates.

    I love the Yoda's Theme music from Star Wars V - The Empire Strikes Back. So calm and so smooth, love the track.

    I voted for A New Hope, since that was the one that started them all. But the truth is I see it all as one big flick.

    The Empire Strikes Back was by far my favourite soundtrack

    The Carbon Freeze follow by Darth Vader's trap was beyond epic!

    Gotta say, surprised to see only 3 AOTC selections here.
    Great tracks like, "Return to Tatooine," "Jango's Escape," the arena theme, the music that plays during the first part of the duel with Dooku, the Coruscant speeder chase, the theme for Obi-Wan's and Jango's dogfight over Geonosis, and of course, "Across the Stars." It has such a wide range of tones throughout the entire movie, and the variety never ceases to impress me

    My vote is for Revenge of the Sith. This movie has new musical heights with the guttural rawness of 'Palpatine's teachings' and the tense despair of 'Padmé's Ruminations'. It elevates the game with 'Anakin's betrayal', 'Immolation scene', 'Anakin's dark deeds', which I find some of the most heart-wrenching pieces in the whole saga. I consider 'the Jedi Temple March', when the newly 'kighted' Vader leads the assault on the Jedi Temple on par with the much revered Imperial March. There's a imperialistic similarity in both themes that connects well young Vader to fully transformed Vader; in the Temple March, the tone of the march is much more openly pompous, the one of an overconfident youth asserting his place, whereas the tone of ESB's Imperial March has a more routine OCD 'quietly menacing' feel matching Vader of the OT. I also am impressed with 'Battles of the Heroes' and place it second only to 'A Jedi's Fury' in ROTJ. You can truly feel the ire, grief & tension of both duelists in the melody.

    Empire Strikes Back is #1 for me but The Phantom Menace and Revenge of the Sith are both right behind it. Really all 6 of them are solid...heck John Williams in general is pretty great.
