What in the world makes you think Mace Windu would have gone over to the dark side if he killed Palpatine? Jedi are supposed to kill sith lords (or others who go around mass murdering innocent people), that's the point of the duel if the sith refuses to surrender. For the reasons stated in my post above, the courts simply could not be trusted to convict and punish Palpatine for his crimes, and he certainly couldn't be allowed to escape to murder even more people. Therefore he had to be killed to stop him. Mace Windu didn't really have much choice under the circumstances.
