With any SW music there's always the license problem, even for LucasArts themselves (as the rights to the SW music lie with Sony, I think). When they use the soundtracks in their games (even just snippets of John Williams' themes), they have to license it themselves, and those licenses only cover the usage in the game, and not any further (so not for a soundtrack release).

Of course, they could do it like EA did with the Harry Potter videogame scores, which were released (if only as downloads) with JW's themes edited out.
