    Trying to remember the name of the track but it's not coming to me
    I love the music in the scene where Obi-Wan confronts Padme.
    "Anakin is the father, isn't he? ...I'm so sorry"
    Almost certainly one of my favorite moments in the saga. It wouldn't be the same without the music in that depressing moment

    Definitely the binary sunset scene , that music really makes my spine tingle. The Imperial March,the astroid scene and the cloud city escape music are also some of my favorite star wars music.

    Duel of the Fates is, in my opinion, the most dramatic and exciting battle- though the end result is foretold.

    I'm torn between Order 66 and Birth of the Twins. There's something very sad and inevitable about Order 66. The Jedi are all doomed the minute Anakin chooses Palpatine over Mace, because it means that Sidious survives to issue Order 66. Watching all those Jedi fall is very chilling and really shows us the sheer power and evil of the Emperor.

    But the Birth of the Twins and Padme's Destiny is just as sad, moreover it feels hopeless. Anakin is now Darth Vader, a soulless cyborg who rises from the operating table as Padme takes her last breath. That scene of Vader in the suit standing next to the victorious Darth Sidious is the perfect example of how the Jedi have lost. The galaxy now belongs to the Sith. I think this one is more sad than Order 66, just because of the sheer hopelessness of it all. While a new hope will emerge in time, the Jedi have been all but wiped out and for the next twenty years the Sith will rule with an iron fist. Darth Sidious has won and there's no one left with the power to fight him.

    A New Hope and End Credits at the end of ROTS has to be my ultimate favorite. John Williams is a master (no pun intended)

    Sooooo many of the one's I'm partial to is from ROTJ when Vadar FINALLY "gets it" and gives Palpatine the "heave ho".

    It would be quicker listing the things that don't seeing as how almost everything about Star Wars does. But I'm going to go with the opening score and the iconic crawl.

    My selection would be All of the Above. There's no bad Star Wars music.

    If I had to narrow it down, I'd pick the Force Theme, which pretty much sums up Star Wars, especially the version played at the end of ROTJ when Luke burns Vader's body.

    I like that too, especially when it segues into the music as the camera pans up to the sky and shows the starfighters flying overhead and the fireworks. Perfect scene. It's scenes like that that continue to make me mystified that some people think that ROTJ is one of the worst movies in the OT. I mean, I get the issues with the Ewoks but they were a fairly minor part of the movie overall. The Death Star 2 battle and, more importantly, the psychodrama between Luke, Vader, and Emperor Palpatine were the more substantive parts of the film.

    Aside from that music, Yoda's theme is probably my favorite motif from all of the Star Wars movies so far. Trackwise, "Confrontation with Count Dooku" at the end of AOTC is amazing, particularly when they suddenly bring in the Imperial March over the sight of the Grand Army launching on Coruscant under Palpatine' eye.

    It's amazing how powerful and moving that music is, even after all these years! Yoda's theme is brilliant!

    Other star wars music I like is Duel of Fates, Across the Stars, Mustafar Duel, Victory Celebration and the Jedi Temple March. Star Wars has probably my favorite movie music of all time.

    Luke and Leia. I think it's the very best Star Wars track ever, and every time I hear the theme I get chills.

    Since the soundtrack is so good, I'll do one from each film

    The Phantom Menace: Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, And Darth Maul Continue Battle
    Attack of the Clones: Yoda Strikes Back
    Revenge of the Sith: I Am The Senate
    A New Hope: The Death Star motif (bu-bububu-bum!)
    The Empire Strikes Back: Hyperspace (Maybe not tingles, but it sure gets me in a pumped up-state!)
    Return of the Jedi: The Fleet Enters Hyperspace

    Of course, there is also the combination of the 20th Century Fox Fanfare, the famous "pause," and the main title in every film as well!

    The complete version on the Obi-Wan and Yoda vs. Anakin and Palpatine duel is incredibly good. I just wish that it had actually been released. All we get is the first half, and the ending in Battle of the Heroes. The middle is the best part!
