> Would you care to explain what "broken chords" are?

A sequence of notes that (when stacked) would form a chord. So, if and {this is a sequence}, then:

is a c-major chord, and
{c e g c e g c e g ..} is a broken c-major chord sequence.

There's no effort in breaking chords and use it as theme/melody, every child can do it. Whether it's a variation like {c e g g e c} or {g c e g c e} doesn't really matter. Musically speaking, the information is the same; the information of chords, nothing beyond that apart from a rhythmic structure. And for a franchise that started with JW's excellent *real* themes, Desplat's effort is a big bummer. I've heard this mechanism before (TGC).. so I'll stick to my opinion that Desplat can't write grand themes.
