Firstly there are many religions in Star Wars, and most of them have Hells. Even the Jedi order is technically a religion, as was stated on the Death Star by several Imperials. And not everyone will believe in the force.

Secondly, there has to be a level of cultural references which the viewer/reader can tag onto or the story would become unaccessible. Since we have a concept of Hell, we can relate to it in a film/book. If the line was "See you in Nilheim" then it wouldn't have the same resonance.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.
