  • TIE Fighter Attack
  • Leia’s Theme is pretty

THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

  • The Asteroid Field
  • Han and the Princess
  • Lando’s Palace
  • Yoda’s Theme

RETURN OF THE JEDI

  • Sail Barge Assault
  • Jabba’s Theme (and also his Baroque Recital)
  • Alliance Assembly
  • Luke and Leia is actually pretty good
  • Into the Trap
  • Light of the Force
  • and yes the Emperor’s Theme is very good, and the Forest Battle Suite is a nice collection

THE PHANTOM MENACE

  • Duel of the Fates obviously
  • The Swim to Otoh Gunga
  • The Droid Invasion
  • Augie’s Great Municipal Band

ATTACK OF THE CLONES

  • Across the Stars
  • The Chase Through Coruscant

REVENGE OF THE SITH

  • Battle of the Heroes is good

THE FORCE AWAKENS

  • Rey’s Theme is one of the most wonderful pieces in all of Star Wars
  • Han and Leia is a nice one
  • Scherzo for X-Wings
  • The Jedi Steps
  • March of the Resistance and the villains’ theme is good too

THE LAST JEDI

  • Rose’s Theme is good, wherever that is
  • Canto Bight, despite being a dumb sequence in the film, is sooooo good

The other soundtracks I have barely heard, if it all, so I can not comment on those. I am sure they have some good stuff.
