how about Elliot Goldenthal?
He is the only composer in my opinion who can actually give a really really dark meaning to the Empire for Episode III.
Goldenthal is full of originality and i am sure that he will make great use of Williams's themes while at the same time he will add new touches in the Star Wars sound(take for example Williams's use of electric guitar in AOTC).
Goldenthal, like Williams, has the capability to write GREAT music. There is a significant artistic difference between the use of trumpets by Williams and Goldenthal, when compared to the rather pointless "let's use it all the way" brass writing by Debney and Arnold. I can merely imagine how dark the "Empire" theme will be turned, if it is given in the hands of Elliot Goldenthal...
...still though...personally i prefer that John Williams does the job.
...everyone else besides, perhaps, Howard Shore or Jerry Goldsmith are not able to accomplish such demanding task.
