Yeah, I haven't been able to bring myself to read any of the new books for this reason. It's sad, because most of what made the EU great for me was in the books, and I still have a wall in my house that's just bookshelves packed full of EU books. As much as I love Timothy Zahn and I'm sure he's doing a good job storytelling in the new Star Wars landscape, his (and others') characters were so well-established and consistent across the whole EU timeline that it's impossible to shake that sense of who they were and look at them as new, blank-slate characters with the same names and personalities, but none of the history. Just doesn't feel quite right.
