altho i find it a little questionable that HK would still be intact 4000 years later, in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Marvin the Paranoid Android was on Frogstar World B for Five Hundred and Seventy-Six Thousand Million years, until the end of the universe when they finally found him at Milliways: The Resturant at the End of the Universe, and he was still intact, so for me 4000 years for HK isn't as big a leap of faith. He is a droid, so he can't die of old age. i think Its just a cool little cameo to help tie the games together (and sure, its also a marketing ploy). it kinda makes the star wars universe feel a little more connected to have one game reference another. Its kinda like when Obi Wan mentioned Quinlan Vos in epIII. Sure you didn't actually see Vos, but it helped tie the movies into the EU a little bit more.
