While you can appreciate a work on the „technical“ level, you of course never can fully ignore the context of a work it is attached to. And neither can the artist. Work for hire is a reason (we have the saying „I was young and needed the money“…) but of course that’s a bit simple.
However I would not be that quick with damming him because of one possibly wrong decision what to score.… Also he might not have been aware how the movie will turn out later as you often don’t really see that when it is made. Which might have happened especially if he didn’t score the final cut.
But at least BSX managed to make the cover look fittingly 😉 And always have to think of Goldsmith’s Rambo 2+3 which I do like as action scores a lot as the films are quite problematic as well and got a lot worse reviews back then.
