The last track

As much as I enjoy the Chambers soundtrack, I do have to say the last track disappoints me quite a lot. It is lifted directly from the previous film's soundtrack, but with a new ending tacked on the the London Symphony Orchestra. Listening to it with headphones, one can even tell the exact point at which the new ending is edited in, as both the style of the orchestra and the quality of the recording is noticably different. Three questions come to mind: 1) Why did Qilliams not compose a new suite for this film, in the style of the first three Star Wars films, with the new themes represented? 2) Given the lack of a proper end title suite, why did they not record the final track entirely with the LSO, instead of lifting 99% of the music from the previous disc? and 3) If this is all they could do, why did they even include this track at all? The ending of the previous track is far more satisfying, and suffices to round off the album quite nicely without track 20 taking up the last 6 minutes or so of available space.
