Lucas himself admitted pretty explicitly in an interview conducted by Christopher Nolan that he knew nothing of story and didn't even like the idea of storytelling in cinema because he felt that it was cinema trying to be other mediums when the forte of cinema was its visuals.

It's too late now, but what Lucas always needed in his career was another Kershner type figure to work with who could temper his visual storytelling with their character storytelling.

Plus the whole Kirsh thing (which is probably the only reason it worked out - imagine Lucas directing....). Of course later on he did attempt to bring it more in line with his vision for the series:
