That's true, but when you were championing someone 'completely different' I assumed the subtext was also to have very different sounding music (with Greenwood say putting out a soundtrack more like There Will Be Blood
than Empire Strikes Back
Whoever the composer is, I think a neo-romantic score littered with easily identifable leitmotifs is the best way to go for a Star Wars picture.
