Eh, I liked Kyp. Jedi that was pals with Han and had a revenge storyline making him the anti-hero of the NJO. That could have went somewhere. It didn't but it was the thought that counts. Plus I think most people loved the Yavin 4 setting of the Jedi Academy and the tie ins with Tales of the Jedi. Even today on the SWTOR message boards you'll see tons of calls for bringing in Yavin 4 because of the lore Anderson helped establish. I feel like that's part of what's missed by many anti-eu arguments is the sheer pervasiveness of the EU. Millions of people have played the MMO's, the first person shooters and the space flight games. These people may not have preconceived notions about the name of Han's kid(s) but they do have a ton of expectations for how certain aspects of the SW universe better work in the new movies. I personally like the idea of a "Ben Skywalker" and his antagonist/love interest girlfriend. But for the directors to say they are ignoring the EU and writing something new altogether is disingenuous because nearly anyone with a speck of interest in star wars has certainly been influenced by some aspect of the EU. I'm convinced that they may start off with a blank slate new planet or species, and then as they are writing it realize they're actually describing something they had forgotten from the EU. Then it's just a quick find and replace to change the name to the existing name and make us EU'ers happy.
