The Emperor needs to be the recognized authority figure in order to act as the focus for the collective psionic gestalt. Aside from that semi-spirtual aspect, he's actually a figurehead.

In the rebel propaganda, he's said to use "battle meditation" to basically mind-control the troops. Really it's actually a defensive measure against rebel psionics.

I for one want a space-opera setting without psionics for once.
