I have to argue your statement that the Imperial March represents the Empire. I believe that the March is associated with Darth Vader and Anakin only, for it is heard in TPM and in AOTC, in which the Empire is not formed yet, and ceases to play after Vader`s death. The March is played in the later trilogy when Vader is not on screen to indicate his presence as part of the Empire. It is a flaw that it is played in full in AOTC, it should only appear as a growing part of Anakin`s theme. However, John Williams may have decided to sacrifice some consistency to enhance certain scenes musically, for this is a Star Wars movie and the Imperial March may be even better known than the title theme. The audience demands it, and I think when we`ll see the movie, it`ll fit perfectly.
