The EU is popular, but writing the sequel trilogy within its canon is creative suicide.

I’m not saying that you should have it all. The EU is contradicting itself in many places, so contradicting the EU at something minor would not be a big deal.
The only things that I would consider “EU-canon” are those few things I mentioned.

Anyway, the new movies should not be about EU characters or OT characters. Some OT characters need to have been in the sequel-movie somehow to pass the torch, but they should have been in different places in their lives than what they had been back in the start of ANH.
That is one way that the movie could have been more original.
