ui.all.css imports the theme and base css files
the base css file imports several css files like ui.core, ui.tabs, etc.

Just alter the files and strip out the one you don't need.

You're using as well.
Remove the files you don't need from the App_Themes folder if you can't find imports in the css files.

NB depending on what's in your custom css, some files may be needed...
@import "ui.base.css";
@import "ui.theme.css";
@import url("ui.core.css");
@import url("ui.accordion.css");
@import url("ui.datepicker.css");
@import url("ui.dialog.css");
@import url("ui.progressbar.css");
@import url("ui.resizable.css");
@import url("ui.slider.css");
@import url("ui.tabs.css");
