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.
