Vader abuses Leia but he doesn’t seem to know they’re related yet and never takes a parental role.

a sideways lie about a family member is told, but this is not gaslighting as the person being lied to is only hearing a lie and not being made to believe they are insane, silly, or stupid for believing otherwise. gaslighting is a combination of lying and victim blaming NOT just lying.

I think Luke is 16-17 and goes through some stuff, but it's not necessarily abuse and it's not revealed to be parental

Yes. Although it is never mentioned in the film, the droid with the syringe injected Leia with a sort of truth serum that causes severe headaches, meant to get information out of people. But this detail was added years later in a comic or something.

Technically, in early drafts of the script, Darth Vader cuts Obi-Wan in half VERTICALLY, rather than horizontally, meaning his blade would have mutilated his neck as it sliced down. However, this version didn't make it into the final film, so the answer is an easy "No."

You could interpret Tusken Raiders as either Arab or Native American stereotypes. Likewise, the Jawas have been compared to stereotypes of Romani. Both are aliens so that could lessen it for some people, not to mention these accusations are nowhere near as common as the ones for Prequel Trilogy aliens.

There is a very tense scene where a character is dragged underwater by an alien tentacle creature. His friends struggle to save him. He breathes uncomfortably raggedly and goes under several times. When the creature lets him go, he coughs profusely.
