Who thinks it would be a good idea to reboot the entire EU? Just wipe the slate clean.
Let authors have fun with the material again without having to try and be bound by 10,000 previous projects. Let the world feel fresh and exciting again, not filled with tons of repeated refrences to the same concepts, terms, and hackneyed philosophies espoused in earlier books (Isn't "Fate of the Jedi" literally all about retracing the philisophical path Jacen Solo took over the two previous 19 novels? What happened to rescuing the princess and blowing up bad guys?)
Let them try and capture the spirit of the films, not the spirit of slightly better EU works from a decade before.
No more confusion about canon between the PT and the EU because it is obvious Lucas doesn't give a flying fig about EU canon. Let the new material have 12 hours of movies to be consistent with, and ignore everything else. No more decades long repercussion of soul sucking alien invaders, or 8 or 9 new Sith Organizations that seem to coexist. No weird plot twists to cover-up, retcon, or explain away inconsistencies or plotholes. Just new adventures set during and after the films.
I still read the EU, despite generally not liking it, since an average EU novel takes me an afternoon (I always skip most of the last third) and I love Star Wars. I just wish they didn't suck.
