I agree with regards to Lucas. He seems to care very little for the EU storywise. I got the impression from talking to Dave Filoni that the Clone wars only really respects the EU as much as it does because of Dave's affinity for the fans. George on the other hand doesn't even seem to want to maintain continuity with G-level cannon. In Empire strikes back there is a line "no ship that small has a cloaking device". What does george want to do in the clone wars? Give a little tiny ship a cloaking device! The best dave could do was give Anakin a line like "ships that small don't normally have a cloaking device". Small one man fighters having cloaking devices wreaks havoc on ANH. Wouldn't one X-wing just cloak and blow up the death star? All this aside I agree that unless the director/scriptwriter of EP7 cares about the EU, it will get mostly trampled on. As far as no tears being shed, look no further than the opinions listed in the thread to see that the notion is unequivacally false.
