You must be joking. The "Star Wars Theme" heard in the CD is 3 notes. Yout make it sound like the theme is in there...I never noticed at all until your post. As for the "Batman" music, the drums are slightly similar but nothing more.

I think that to be a ripoff or a theft of previous themes it has to be an obvious, blatant ripoff. Like James Horner using his music from Star Trek II and then the same music in Cocoon...

3 notes or a couple seconds of similar sounding music does not qualify. Jeez, if that was considered a ripoff then there are thousands of scores that rip off other scores...

But I applaud your listening skills...
