.....The Emperor doesn't deal with the day to day running of the Empire and hasn't even been on DK for like a decade prior to the start of the game. Why would he give a flying f about the disbanding of Imperial Intellegence when he is in his end game?
Don't be ridiculous... Disbanding of Imperial Intelligence does not fall under "day-to-day running". The Imperial Intelligence is what basically keeps the Empire together and is parallel in importance to Imperial Military (which is pretty much the most important element of Empire). If Emperor or DC wouldn't care about that then they wouldn't care about Empire at all. It is true that Emperor had bigger goals than the Empire (JK storyline) but the Empire was the only mean to achieve that goal. So if the Empire would collapse from within as a consequence of disbandment of Imperial Intelligence then he can kiss his goal good bye.
