Hey, this sounds a lot like the music from Star Wars. What gives?

It wouldn’t surprise me if John Williams got his inspiration from Gustav Holst’s: The Planets. 

And that’s what I like about it. If you don’t want to use music from Star Wars in your games, but still have an epic feel, The Planets is the way to go.

There’s a lots of versions out there. I personally own the Sir Colin Davis version with the London Symphony Orchestra. The examples above come from the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

You can find both on Amazon or iTunes for fairly cheap.
