To Disney, Star Wars means the recognizable elements - Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie, Artoo, ole Darth - the characters that a random person in a mall in Cleveland could rattle off from memory. That's what they paid $4 billion for.
Expecting them to value the EU is like expecting them to care about Snow White's backstory from the original tale. (Whatever happened to poor Rose Red anyway?)
Nothing happened to her, she's from a different fairy tale, in german the tales are called "Schneewittchen" (Snow White) and "Schneewei▀chen und Rosenrot" (Snow White and Rose Red). It's a translation issue, the two Snow Whites are not the same character.
