    Default Was Yoda's theme perhaps the most overused in all the films?

    Especially noticeable in AOTC and ROS where it plays several times in the film despite Yoda not being present. For example, when Anakin and Padme are in the droid factory in AOTC, and later pretty much the whole thing is played during the finale celebrations in ROS.

    AOTC I suppose you can chalk up to the movie's weird music editing and a rushed score (as Williams had a busy year-some of his AOTC soundtrack also shows up in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets for example). I'm pretty sure the exact same music is also played when Yoda fights Dooku and lifts the wreckage off of Anakin and Obi-Wan.


    In ESB it's used when Luke tries to rescue the gang from Cloud City, but it sort of makes more sense there as it's Luke who is now "Full of surprises" from at least partial training from Yoda.

    Don't recall it in the factory scene.

    It's a brief use right after R2 starts flying, with Anakin dodging the arms and flames, and right before Padme gets knocked into the bowl thing.


    The scene uses a lot of music from other scenes in the movie, I think in part because it was a fairly late addition during re shoots because Lucas felt the film needed an extra action scene, which it hadn't had for quite a while. I'm not even sure if it's in the adaptations even.

    Didn’t realize it was in that scene either, mainly because I hate AOTC. Either way, it’s my favorite Williams Star Wars theme so I don’t mind
    Going to see The Empire Strikes back live next month and can’t wait to hear it live!
