Lucas has said that he was a big fan of the serial movies that you'd go to see in movie theaters. Like cartoons/sitcoms for us. Parts in a series. If you missed one, you just had to see the next one and hope you could keep up. So he wanted to make you feel in the middle of an Epic story and you were only seeing a slice.
It's pretty simple really. Good idea.
