Then you'll only make it easier to get that objective (or harder, depending on how you see it): only the space around destroyed coruscant needs to be occupied by the rebels then.

Truely evil and Emperor Palpatine worthy action! Fairly sure it's a legal move...

The system is still there for mission/objectives. Same as if you go and seek Yoda even if Dagobah was destroyed.

As others pointed out, there is no reason for the Empire to ever do this. The objective can still be completed by rebel ships. Only reason I could think for doing this would be if the rebels had a large enough ground force on Coruscant to make it tempting for the Empire to blow up its own capitol and administrative center...and when would that ever happen?

Another interesting thing: the rules specifically say that Coruscant is always loyal to the empire and cannot gain or lose loyalty...so it is the only system that would still have loyalty even after being destroyed.

Hmm, rulebook also specifically says that destroyed systems do not have loyalty and Corey clarified that destroyed system are neither populous nor remote. I think this means that destroyed Coruscant no longer has loyalty.

That's an interesting point - sometimes it does matter, since usually you cannot score "all the populous systems in a region have rebel loyalty" objective in Coruscant's region.

I never said there is any gain in it, just that it's an allowed to do.

Yeeeeaaah. Destroying your own capital would make it harder for the empire.
