Since ASP Extensions includes MVC Website development and Silverlight, I would have hoped that these technologies are compatible.
Has anyone managed to combine these by serving up Silverlight Controls page, from an MVC View.
needing to be run Server side.
Shame that these combining these two technologies seems to be such a pain.

MVC have not code behind.
More, you can put silverlight code in a HTML regular page - so more with MVC ViewPage
Since ASP Extensions
What asp extensions are you talking about?

While silverlight is no longer recommended for browser developement (no windows 8 rt support, and only desktop IE support in x86 windows 8), in practice it just an active/x control hosted by the IE. html produced by MVC will host it the same as html produced
silverlight is designed to call wcf webservices, not webapi, or mvc action, but you can call actions drectly using silverlight webclient or HttpWebrequest.
