Here’s a hilarious experiment. Let’s remove John Williams’ music from a Star Wars scene. This particular scene is the throne room scene where Princess Leia gives Luke and Han those stupid medals.
You just saved the galaxy. Here are some medals. Good job.
So anyway, the scene is totally awkward without the music. No one says anything, except Chewbacca and his random yells. Leia and Han are giving each other weird looks. Everyone is strangely quiet, except for random coughing.
The whole thing is just uncomfortable.
