In charge of scheduling, Yoda was.
My understanding is that Star Wars started out with a lengthy story from Lucas, who brought his ideas to a movie company who were fully convinced that Sci-Fi was a dinosaur of the movie industry. No doubt it had been beaten to death by then, but the movie company had no idea that Lucas was about to refresh that opinion, as well as the entire industry. So Lucas had to condense the best of what he had into a snapshot of his entire story - probably very difficult to do - knowing full well that, at it's best, it might not even reach the mediocre popularity of his prior film "America Graffiti" (which became a major classic long ago).
Turned out Star Wars 1 or, Star Wars: A New Hope" was an all-time major hit, and so a sequel was in order. Where to go? Pick up from where you left off and move forward, of course. So by the time he had a few sequels under his belt, he had no choice but to return to the first chapters. So what did we have, the fourth Star Wars move was actually part 1 now? Too confusing.
That aside, because Lucas became so lengthy between new SW releases, it was refreshing to see them released much more frequently after being bought out. However, the franchise seems headed for overexposure if they don't play "dangle the carrot" soon.
Where next, pick back up at 7?
Use the fork, Luke.
