Ehh, by that point megatron was not exactly in his "prime". It would had ended in a similar manner regardless, Even if prime had given him a fair chance to defend himself.
As far as the decepticon forces being completely destroyed. Thanks to the Marvel comics and Japanese tv episodes, bay has SEVERAL storylines to puzzle in as a expansion to the third movie.
Basically here they are....
-Jhiaxus, basically make it where they was a faction of conquesting decepticons that splintered off from the main branch when megatron went on his mad search for the cube. After the recent destruction of cybertron it peaked warlord jhiaxus's interest in what caused the utter destruction of his home world and has journeyed to earth to steal what ever weapon or technology could do this.
-Overlord, Similar story to Jhiaxus. But make it where megatron wanted to create colony's offworld of cybertron to expand the decepticon reach and act as a backup plan if anything should ever happen to megatron or the main empire on cybertron. They could even work in black zarak this way by making it where after the cons settled on a planet they converted their space ship into a transforming base and weapon of mass destruction.
The interesting thing about this storyline would be that it could even have a plot twist where devil-z had actually taken over the colony and was using powermasters to control overlord, and devil z himself using his new "technology" had even integrated himself so that he could control the decepticon city/ship/ultimate weapon mech and everything inside it. Adding a larger sense of Big Brother to this off-world decepticon colony. The big climax to the movie being when the autobots discover the true one in charge is a old decaying cyborg inside this gigantic robots head.
-Unicron, yes unicron, Hasbros all time favorite god bot. There really needs to be no explaining here. Basically it involves making Galvatron from the remains of the various dead cons from movie 3. Here is the kicker, galvatron is insane, mostly due to the fact that he also has the 3 corrupted personalitys of the dead cons he was made from... Being megatron, starscream, and shockwave. Fun right?
Of course it could just be a huge mish mash of all 3. Which could work, replace devil z with unicrons spark, Have jhiaxus and overlord be co-generals, and have unicron make shock/scream/tron as a third power in his trio of doom.
