> The fact that the battledroid music was used for the clones on Kamino was that it can be seen as invasion music (note that it has close resemblance to the original imperial theme from A new hope). You can see this kind of thing happening with the "escape from Naboo" music, which also featured during the podracer breakdown sequence in TPM as well as during the clone rescue in AOTC.
The sequences are related, because they all have to do with the theme of rescue. Thus the music is perfectly in place.

Further more i'd like to say that Jango Fett has theme indeed (see track 7). It's a descending furious little brass motif accompanied by a staccato brass line, sort of the same stuff that Boba's theme in TESB was made out of.

Tracks 12 & 14 feature very embryonic versions of "Darth Vader's Theme", much like "The Droid Battle" from TPM, to represent the evil forces at work. In that respect "Darth Vader's Theme" and the battledroid music as well as the imperial theme from ANH are very close associates in their meaning.

I enjoyed the score. It seems like Williams is becoming more and more like a Stravinsky than a Johan Strauss. A development with which i am very pleased.
