e.g. AVP2010. Had some nice references to the events of the movies, but nothing directly linking it and the exact time period was kept vague. And I liked that.

I liked the subtle references.
"This drop is shaping up to be worse than Acheron...if that's possible" was a great line to me because it shows that the events of Aliens weren;t covered up by the company and used as a blue print of how not to handle an infestation. It also gave you the feeling that the Marlow and her marines had dealt with infestations before.

Yeah, I always loved that line too. The audio log from Weyland referencing Ripley was another nice touch.

We'll have to play the "wait n' see" game on the canon issue. Clearly, this is based on previous characters and events but if they try to make it somehow a lead-in to Aliens, I wouldn't be surprised. Nor disappointed, really. The time frame between Alien and Aliens will be covered in full at some point so the new comics/books are probably going to attempt to fill those gaps.

Honestly, they can call it canon or just create their own stories that could fit in within the universe. Just want them to create something respectable and worth the effort.
