Looks like a defensive registration to me.
I assume Google Mega is linked to the Google Mega Sitelinks that has been active for a few now. On the otherhand it couldbe linked to another mega project google is working on (pun intended)

In addition to this i noticed that Google also regged : GoogleElections.com wich looks like another defensive registration to me. Unless it has something todo with the upcoming elections but i doubt it. GoogleElections.net was registered in 2010.
