I think you're forgetting that New Republic fighter wings are only 3 squadrons so if we take the Starships of the Galaxy Sourcebook number of 5 squadrons + 2 wings, that only comes out to 11 total squadrons.
I'm not sure that's an entirely fair comparison. Phantom Menace wasn't aligned with a newly blank slate expanded universe - most of the related media which followed that film's release was heavily influenced by or related to the previous nine years of world-building.
From a quick look at your list the only novels that don't directly rely on something that came out before TPM are the Bounty Hunter Wars trilogy and Tales from the New Republic, with the Jedi Apprentice series and Rogue Planet as tie-ins with the new movie rather like the "Journey to.." stuff Disney has done for both Force Awakens and Last Jedi. There's a lot of young reader/young adult content in both lists (which I never read in the old EU anyway), and the games are much of a muchness for both (lots of movie tie-ins for TPM, lots of mobile/casual games for TFA).
The story group releases less books comics and video games because it is trying to keep a straightfoward canonity
We need to give this new canon a chance. We are talking 30 years of expanded universe lore vs about half a decade of Canon lore in the new canon. Good Star Wars movies, books, comics, and TV shows will have to come around.
I won't even go to the theatre.
I won't support Disney's policy on this type of thing.
Because they are going to do it unless ticket sales drop and they don't have money.
As long as they get money, we can say whatever we want, they won't listen because they see that numbers are up and nothing else matters to them.
