Give Disney a chance. They're just building up their markets and introducing new fans to the Star Wars series. Young fans that probably don't know much about it yet, hence the cameo. Disney are the media giant they are for a good reason, they've been in the industry for so long they've pretty much cornered the market to the point of near monopoly.
The crossovers are non-canon and frankly it's just harmless fun. Star Wars isn't some pure goddess that Disney's squatting over shitting into her open mouth. She's already been thoroughly whored out by Lucas again and again and again. At least Disney seem to have dignity about themselves.
I say we just let them have their chance and when we see how they appeal to their 4 core markets (Games, Theme Park, Movies and the Rebels T.V. series) then we can make a better judgement.

Yea, but that's not the only reason I consider it a fantasy. Star trek for example, is a universe that is ours, it is very much based in reality, but with ludicrous technology and space travel to make it something different. Star wars basically only has like two traits it shares with our world, the humans, and some of the environment, like snowy places and forests.

Technically most of Star Trek's tech is based around theories of how things will actually work in real life and it's currently truer to the nature of science and theoretical space-travel than many more modern films.
However Star Wars being disconnected from our own reality doesn't make it a fantasy. It is a fantasy because of all of the magical elements in it, the stylised nature of the universe itself is an aesthetic choice that simply makes it escapist science-fantasy. Mass Effect has a lot of oddities to it that make the world different to what we're currently experiencing/theorising but that's mostly because of the introduction of Element-Zero where they warp the laws of physics to make pseudo-magic based firmly in scientific grounds.
That makes it escapist science-fiction, even if it is very different to what science says the future may be.
