Off the top of my head I can't think of any. Most empires spread their culture; they don't lose it. Even the defeated empire the Nazis tried to create didn't result in a loss of culture or religion.

Yes. The goal of empires is to expand. There are negative effects, especially when the mother country brutalizes the colonies and the native peoples. Often the victims are seen as the heroes and the empire is morally and ethically diminished.
