I'm not sure if this is quite what you are looking for, but John Williams is hugely famous for his notable themes from film scores. Examples include:
Hedwig's Theme from Harry Potter
Indiana Jones theme
The motifs range from 3 to about 6 or 7 notes, depending on the piece and they are played throughout the entire piece. I wouldn't rank Williams with Beethoven in terms of skill, but he's certainly made a name for himself in our time.
