It's funny but he originally indended Darth Vader as just sort of a 
throw-away character. The fans loved him so much that he expanded his role 
out and went nuts with his character.

However, he does have the basic universe mapped out. The fall of the 
empire, the concept of the rebellion, and the Force. Sort of like 
JMS and Babylon 5 (except JMS has finer grain detail 1000 years on each 
side of the show, whereas Lucas is looser).
