Well, remember that in IV through VI, Lucas wanted to keep the focus on the concept of Jedi. That was Vader's story - that he had been a Jedi who was tempted and fell. The notion of a whole other order of Force adepts was superfluous to the story being told. The very first mention of the Force in Ep. IV is "Vader was seduced by the dark side of the Force". This is immediately after Ben describes Vader as "a young Jedi knight, who was a pupil of mine before he turned to evil". It was only when the saga was extended to tell the story briefly described in that conversation that introducing the Sith became really germane to the story.
