I will have to agree with the first posts. John Williams is an amazing composer and has done, like everybody knows, some of the most popular themes for movies. But that's it. There is a post that I've done a few months ago on the movie Innerspace by Jerry Goldsmith, that said that John Williams was always writing the same scores over and over. Well, I still think the same today. I think Star Wars has some nice themes, but besides that, he's only putting notes everywhere and giving them to any instruments. Sometimes it even seems that he's composing while watching television. Meaning that he has his musical sheets and he is just writing any note, anywhere on the staff, and just making sure that it is in the right scale and the right chord.
