I sat through the credits clinging to the hope that the rumors about the credit music being changed were untrue. Alas, this was not the case. For the life of me, I can't figure out why the credit music was changed...IMHO, AOTC has the second best finale music in the series, next to ESB.
The only thing I can think of is maybe the original score ran too long? I haven't timed it, but it is pretty long, relative to the other finales. This is the only thing I can think of, because the end credits aren't something that are likely to be affected by last-minute editing.
