    What we have here are 2 great examples of JW's composing the first, IM, was written 20 years ago during the origional trilogy and Indiana Jones. This was an example of the "space-age melodrama" style that made him famous and perhapse one of the greatest composers of the modern age of music. Now we come 20 years down the line to see his more mature style of music. This cam be seen in such pieces as the themes from Schendler's List and Saving Privite Ryan. Although when JW wrote the TF theme, he went back to his older style and borrowed aspects of it to have it fit in to SW, you can still see a differance in the two examples.

    For all the musicians out there, I did think that it was really awesome how at the end of AOTC, he slowed the tempo of the IM, added the triplets in the background and gave the song a rebirth with new energy. also if you listen to the very last of the AOTC soundtrack, you will hear Anikin's theme die away and be replaced with the love theme which dies away to the Imperial March. Musical Forshadowing???
    I THINK SO!!!!
