Another reason why they didn't torch Yavin could be that it would start a fusion reaction, essentially turning Yavin into a temporary star. Given the range of the Death Star's weapon, it is plausible that this would fry the Death Star. The Emperor might not like that. "Sorry, but we burned your weapon..."
