I feel like Naga Sadow's tomb can prove incredibly useful, however. If I remember right, the force users that visited his tomb came out incredibly powerful. Powerful enough to start a war and challenge the Republic. If anything, they should preserve it, obtain the knowledge, and then just say that their ways were ancient and the Rule of Two is much more efficient.

The problem is that in 1977, when the movie came out, it was just a place the rebels found. It was only fifteen years later when the EU gave Yavin 4 "cultural significance" that you come up with your question.

I'm aware the lore hadn't been written when the movie came out. I was just wondering if their were a reasonable in-universe excuse for their actions. Perhaps Tarkin was going against the Emperors wishes, and Vader wasn't in a position to do anything or just wasn't Sith enough to care about the temples. He does seem to be pretty emotionally repressed.
Ohhh. Great warrior. Wars not make one great.

You might want to take a different look at it, did Vader and Palpatine even know what those temples were? It seems the Sith lose so much of their history between every rise and fall of the empire. Planets names change or disappear even from the jedhi archives too.

I don't. The Empire was about to use it's big planet sized space station to vaporize a planet that housed the leaders of the rebellion. That was far more useful and relevant to their immediate goals at the time. Sacrifices needed to be made. Death Star takes out the Rebels > Ancient Sith tombs and Naga Sadow's legacy.
