Like the title says. There are Droids. If you are worried about Droids taking over, there are restraining bolts.
So why have slaves? Droids can handle the work that needs to be done.

You make a good point. I suppose it's more of a symbolic thing.

There are very few droids that can move like a humanoid, so there are tasks a droid simply cannot do that a humanoid can.

And there is symbolism involved: superiority of one species over another another.

And it is a form of punishment.

Slavery normally happens when the empire conquers a planet. 9 times out of 10 when they conquer a planet the original species of said planet are put into slavery so it is part of the empire's way of establishing control of said planet and species of said planet.

Droids can't be bought with power or money. I mean if an Empire came to Earth and promised me power and fortune, in return they wanted you lot to mine stuff for them, you lot will be on your knees in those mines before nightfall.

I kind of agree. One of the good things I see about Zakuul for example was that they didn't spent time trying to enslave everyone and their akk dogs and instead used droids for most menial tasks. Thing is how much does it cost to build a droid, run maintanence ETC VS enslaving a slave, he dies then you get a new one because of the constant fresh supply of them since you Empire is conquering worlds and enslaving species left and right.

It was included to call attention to the issue. Just as the Empire was meant to remind people of the Nazis, droids and sentient slaves were included to remind people of the evils of slavery, as it still exists in some parts of the world today in various forms.

It is useless in a world with droids. But the Sith empire believes the weak should serve the strong.

Itís about power. You take your enemies and make them slaves. Jabbas slav snmostlynseem d to be entertainers , dancers and musicians. Do you really want to watch droids dance? In this game on Coruscant there is a quest where you go to see about freeing a dudes wife from sex slavery. Nobody wants to bang a droid, so thatís totally real
