The fact that Cat will never know that Ned was truly loyal to her after all these years still upsets me

In both those scenarios it was the author's own son who did the work.

Incorrect. In Herbert's case it was his son, and a completely unrelated other author. You're also totally ignoring all the additional material produced based off their source materials (e.g., the movies of both franchise) that didn't involve the original authors directly.

Not allowing this story to be completed is a massive middle finger to all the fans that supported and enriched him.

Do you have an alternate explanation for why he would choose to try and prohibit anyone else from finishing other than a selfish need for control?

You're arguing about something different than I am - you're saying he's entitled to do that. I'm commenting on his motivations for doing that.
