I've been listening to this soundtrack since the day it was released and I always knew there was something about the "Love Theme" that struck me as... well, let me explain.

We know that "Anakin's Theme" has permutations of "The Imperial March;" in fact, it degenerates into the "Imperial March" by the end of the theme. Well, there are also hints of the "Imperial March" in the "Love Theme" as well.

If you listen to the entire track, Williams plays the dominant theme a number of times, starting out low and subdued before allow the orchestra to swell into a full-bodied statement of the theme. Then, it enters this sweeping, but troubled section before a tremulous, foreboding miasma of strings. If you listen closely, under the strings, the first three notes of the "Imperial March" can be heard. This "foreboding miasma" is repeated towards the end of the track, right before the theme is played on harp for the final time.

Take a listen and let me know what you think.
