No use of Death Star motif?   Sunday, February 19, 2012 (10:42 a.m.) 

"The idea sadly disappears completely in the sequels, not even hinted in Return of the Jedi for the second Death Star."

Umm, am I hearing things, or wasn't that the Death Star motif at 1:49 into 'Battle of Endor III - Superstructure Chase'?

I know this is old, but you can also hear it at the end of Sail Barge Assault (5:39 of Disc 1, Track and in The Fleet Enters Hyperspace (Disc 2, Track 3 of the 97 SE) at 8:16

Is that the motif he was talking about? I assumed it was the other one, which you can hear on the '97 ANH CD in "Imperial Attack" from about 4:06 - 4:20.

I love that little motif, and it does make an appearance at least once in the ESB soundtrack, for instance in "Betrayal at Bespin" from about 0:10 to 0:15.
