I agree, at least some... I think I like things, like in the Hope Trailer, such as seeing the Republic using a white armor as their basis many years long before the films take place... The armor's also clunkier, bulkier, less efficient looking that the films have.
I like those aspects then, as they give some deep continuity, with such a deep gap in time, between the films and this very old EU.
I also dug some of the Hope Trailer's designs like the droids and whatnot...
Things like Sith lords needing cybernetic **** to live though, very redundant... Hell, it was done in KOTOR already.
And that female Jedi is very Bastilla Shan, other than the saber (she has a staff IIRC), so yeah... That too is at the least dull. Jedi seem fairly similar from TOR era to the Original Trilogy... I can live with them not changing much. She seems meh though. If you're going to do a Jedi and show it off, at least do a species that hasn't been seen or something.
I dig a lot of EU, but like I said, I tend to latch onto individual characters, over the overall feel of an EU storyline. The best EU came out long ago. Since then it's been almost an assembly line to produce the same thing in a different package.
To me, very little ever will come close to the Zahn Trilogy, The Katarn story (in particular, Dark Forces, Jedi Knight, and Mysteries of the Sith), or the X-Wing and TIE Fighter storylines (which are largely overlooked). Those were great stories that meshed with the established story of their time.
Knights of the Old Republic was the last great EU story to me... Since then, everything hasn't come close to the good EU of the mid to late 90's.
Hell, even the West ENd Games books of the old RPG had some of the best EU in them.
