    does the Han and Leia theme count? That's my favorite.

    Sometimes I get burnt out on Luke's theme, but it's still the greatest, and hugely iconic.

    I wish the Into The Trap theme from RotJ got more love. That's when the rebels are approaching the Death Star, realizing the shield is still up, breaking formation, and the swarms of TIEs are swooping in. "Enemy ships in sector 47!" "All ships pull up!" To me, that's the hero theme of the rebel fighter pilots.

    I like Han and Leia's theme a great deal, and the soundtrack from 'Solo' has really grown on me—especially the first track.

    Ben Solo's theme. The idea of reharmonizing it while keeping the same beats is pretty great. And it sounds good!

    Luke's theme for me, as I don't consider Yoda's theme or the Force theme to be "hero" themes per se. They have a depth and pathos that go far beyond a Heroic Mode in a classical music sense. For me.

    I like Princess Leia’s theme a lot. Rey’s is great as well.

    The Millennium Falcon theme is awesome as well. Not technically a hero’s theme, but it’s associated with them.

    I enjoy a lot the Princess's Leia Theme, Chasm Crossfire, Anakin's Theme (the foreshadowing for the Emperial March it's great) and Rey's Theme.

    The Anakin vs. Obi Wan fight music from ROTS is really good.

    Seems too tragic to be a hero theme.

    Anakin’s Theme is my pick. Optimistic and ominous.

    Jyn's too sad... :( That movie made me cry just like The Last Jedi made me.

    It’s pure magic, space opera fairytale personified. One of the best for sure.

    Landos theme is nice. Not the best but underrated.

    I would say Luke, Leia or Rey’s Theme.
