That would set up a perfect scenario where Unicron would come across Megatron's body in his slow journey towards earth, and he could rebuild him into Galvatron for some nefarious purpose. Galvatron would be sent on ahead to engage the Autobots before Unicron's arrival.
In TF1, his body was intact and whole despite the cube lodged in his sternum.
TF3, he pretty much got mutilated.
