I think Palpatine would have killed Padme if she did survive, and still blamed Anakin/Vader for it. It was necessary for Vader to fully accept his new role - he now had nothing left to cling on to from his old life, and nowhere else to go. I also think the rage fueled his descent to the dark side.

Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, Padme was in the Original Trilogy, so her fate had to be decided by the end of the prequels.
