Walter Koenig was in the cast to make the show relateable to young people, I am just so grateful he was not obnoxious like Wesley.
Not sure whether there might have been an age factor involved, but I suspect that most people didn't find Wesley particularly obnoxious, either. I never did. (Okay, there's "Justice," but there are a lot of things in line ahead of Wesley on the list of problems I had with that ep.)
