Then I think in films VII-VIII Luke finally confronts his sister (not Leia) and the Emperor... then IX would have been a distant coda/episode film of sorts... my recollection is quite sketchy. Lucas' so-called master plan changed with every film that was in production.
Think way, way early versions, there were five main characters...the gallant knight/wizard, his faithful sidekick, the young princess, and the two droids...the knight/wizard was split into Obi-Wan Kenobi and Han Solo, the Princess into Luke and Leia.
