Torture was a means of punishment, or interrogation through causing physical pain. Darth Vader was adept at it: even as a Jedi, he Force choked Poggle the Lesser to gain information on killing the brain worms. He once tortured Han Solo so his pain would reverberate through the Force and draw out Luke Skywalker.
