That scene is a callback to the scene in TESB when Luke was unable to lift the X-Wing out of the swamp. In TESB, that same triumphant music played when Yoda was able to lift it. Now that Luke is able to lift the X-Wing, he gets the same musical treatment. It's more of an emotional callback to a *moment* that fans will remember, rather than a specific leitmotivic character connection.

That's not what Clemmensen was talking about there. He was objecting to the Yoda theme during "Reunion" because, well, it makes no sense.

From a scholarly perspective, it does. Yoda's theme was written by John Williams for The Empire Strikes Back as a theme highlighting that a little old alien could be a great Jedi master and a former hero.

In Reunion it accompanies the hug Beaumont Kin gives to the alien mechanic Kled, and the awarding of an alliance victory medal to another alien - Chewbacca - by yet another alien - Maz Kanata.

Ah! Forgot about that one. Yeah, that makes no sense at all.

The only thing that makes sense is Maz Kanata possibly being a force user in the vein of a small person giving advice about the force like how Yoda functioned in the original trilogy. In Force Awakens, she says she knows the force and just happens to have a lightsaber. Like clearly a lot of things were cut and undeveloped from the trilogy and it wouldn't be shocking that Maz Kanata was force sensitive but all the hints got cut from the movie. A small stature person in tuned with the force is not a stretch in this case.
