Maybe, but you would not be able to work while on the VWP.

Most E2's do not seem to retain a foreign residence. Also requires a return ticket. Or onward but presumably in this case return.

I have a very similar situation - but different visa. my family's L1/L2 have expired and extension petitions have been submitted but we are dealing with an RFE. I also need to go back to the UK imminently, I asked my lawyer the same question as you and she strongly advised me against using the ESTA as she said that will cancel the petition and I would have to start the process again (and pay again). She did say that if I really must travel, I am able to do so but I must stay out of US until approval. Not ideal!

* sorry, my other half just pointed out may be different rules for E2 renewal than L1 extension
