This score was a missed opportunity. Thanks to John Williams's 30 years of magic, wannabe composers like me dream of getting the chance to score a Star Wars movie, but I'm sure that desire comes from wanting to write a fully-orchestral, heavily motivic score like Williams's or McNeely's, not some electronically-enhanced market candy like Kiner's.

What makes even less sense is that the Prague Philharmonic was used for less than 50% of the music production, with some orchestral cues being entirely synthesized. I don't know if producers were forcing Kiner's hand, but what we get here sounds like a mistake. Some tracks sound like the demos a composer would mock up on his computer before they are orchestrated for live performance.

At the very least this score could have been a lot better, and I'm sure that's something everyone can agree on.

Orchestral parts = 3/5
Synth parts = 0/5
