They need to put real fans, fans who know the EU to contribute to the films, and not nominal idiots who have only seen the films and nothing else.
Or maybe, instead of getting someone who spends all his time reading Star Wars comic books and fan fiction, get someone who saw the films but spent more time reading Milton, Dante, Homer, etc. That is, if you want a movie that isn't really dumb.
Like I said, you aren't a Star Wars fan. The Expanded Universe is absolutely amazing, you've clearly never read the books or the comics, or played any of the games.

I've also read a couple of the comics.
I've invested so much time and money into the franchise (not as much as hardcore fans have) that I'm not going to continue to invest in it if they scrap everything I've ever learned and done about it.
