Well if that's not the direction they want to go with, they could ignore her. Heck, they could ignore EU completely; i think that's a possibility us fans need to consider might happen. While she's a character i dont care for, this is something ii know might happen with characters i do like, like Jacen and Jaina, or even Anakin Solo.
You have to remember Mara is only a big part of post-ROTJ for those who read EU. There's a lot of fans who dont read it or care for it. Why should writer be confined to that if they can come up with something great on their own?
