The Luke and Leia theme does not develop until Luke realizes that they are brother and sister. In Episodes IV and V the theme does not yet exist because they have not yet realized their family connection. In Episode III they are obviously too young to contemplate their relationship and they are newborns. There were pleanty of scenes involving only Luke and Leia together in IV-V that were NOT accompanied by this theme because they don't realize they are twins. Looking at the saga in chronological order, it would not make sense to hear the theme in Episode III, have a complete absense of the theme in the following two episodes, then have a sudden reemergence of the theme in Episode IV.
