Actually, many of the action sequences are my favorite tracks in the various scores. Examples, the Battle of Hoth, Into the Trap, all of the Battle of Endor tracks, the Battle on Geonosis, and of course, the Duel of Fates. These tracks emphasize the tension of battle, the sorrow of loss, and the joy of victory, in some way or another. So I'd basically say that no, they don't detract from the listenablity of the score.
