"Mace Windu pauses, because even in his victory, he’s still lost. Lost his attachment.
The Republic is done for, and so are the Jedi as he knows them. The claws of the Sith are too deep into this Plan. He didn’t have enough time, enough foresight to fix it all. He knows the Jedi are spread thin, that Shaak Ti’s signal won’t get to enough of them and that there are too many clones to fight.
In an instant, Mace Windu becomes a fugitive, a rebel, and a revolutionary all at once."
Anakin doesn't kill Mace, but the Republic still falls, because that's how the story of the Son of Suns has to go.
