** This has the one-two punch of harshness that the writers themselves weren't aware of. Vader himself [[RevengeOfTheSith had been cut to pieces and burned severely, then was left to die]], so he's drawing on personal experience...and Leia loves Bail Organa dearly, but Vader is her biological father, and ''this'' is the only time he's ever spoken to his daughter sweetly. Seconds before ''torturing her''. Is it any wonder that [[Literature/TheTruceAtBakura when she met his spirit after he died and he told her that he'd inadvertently helped the cause, she didn't want anything to do with him]]?

* The AudioDrama of ''ANewHope'' has [[http://youtu.be/Qe598Iit0Jo this scene]], in which Darth Vader is interrogating Leia with a combination of drugs and the Dark Side of the Force, making her suggestible. Vader tells her that her father wants to know what she's done with the Death Star plans, and goes from gently coaxing to telling her her father ''orders'' she tell them. When she gasps that Father wouldn't, Vader switches to [[ColdBloodedTorture telling her that she's in incredible pain]]. ''Burning alive'', and her flesh has been torn apart, she's dying!
