(Spoilers) But that's the thing. The great war ended in a stalemate. Both the Dominion and the Empire had taken so many casualties, that the Dominion probably would not of been able to destroy the Empire. The Emperor fundamentally is a fool, and in my mind doesn't seem to be much of a military leader, heck he even LETS you kill him when your with the Brotherhood, rather than fight. It's as if he knows that he did the wrong thing and wished to die with dignity. He effectively doomed the Empire.
I think its quite a big feat for Bethesda to even let you do that. Like this is the Emperor who they allow you to assassinate. Thats why I feel Bethesda themselves dont even have much faith in the Empire anymore, ha.
