Every Sith always attempts to destroy his master and take the "head" title. Vader saw young Starkiller as his chance. And we know very well that Vader wants to kill the Emperor at the ending of RotS, which he realized he sacrificed everything only for his wife to die in the end.
I don't think the Emperor knew of Starkiller until that cutscene from TFU1, when Vader appeared-or whatever-to betray him.
In Vaders reply to the emperor "he was ment to root out the rebels" Vader said, "but now we know who they are?" I think that proves Vader and the Emperor had little info on the rebels.
And when the emperor said, "and this alliance that we have unwittingly created, will be our undoing." I don't think they planned this from the moment Vader found young starkiller. If so, why wait so long? If there were rumors of rebels, they would be smart to strike when their at their weakest point.
Idk, makes some sense to me. A lot of game obvious has influence from the prequels, sadly, but still...
Emperor probably didn't know anything of Starkiller until he came (as the Jedi Galen Marek) to the Death Star. Still, it's strange how Empy figured Starkiller would help root out the rebels given he didn't trust Vader a lot.
I imagine TFU2 will add to this speculation.
