In truth, I made it up as I went along lol. Though for the very first bit(first sentence), I did take an idea from another story after that my imagination sorta just took over.

Another scenario is that Anakin could have figured out that Palpatine intended to bring about the death of Padme to further push Anakin down the dark path.

Instead of Anakin attacking Windu, he ignites his lightsaber into the Sith Lord's face, and while Anakin would then have to admit his relationship with Padme and needs counselling, the Galaxy is safe.

Either Palpatine unleases a massive force lightning blasts, or Mace Windu cuts him down. Remember according yo the books Palpatine can transfer his consciousness to clones of himself, which he was doing even back then, so he would just take control of the Trade Federation army, and he could still issue order 66 before the Jedi tell the troopers he's Sith, it would just mean he's more open about his Tyranny and doesn't try to justify it.

Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.

If Anakin didn't stop Windu,then Sidious would have killed both.Or kill just Windu ,then disarm and stun Anakin or something them keep him locked somewhere untill he deals with order 66,then torture him or something to turn him to the dark side.
Windu has no chance vs Sidious ,plot armor or not.

He only issued Order 66 after the Windu fight, he wouldn't have had the chance to before he was killed. And even if he did transfer his consciousness, he'd basically have to start over from scratch in politics since he wouldn't have any of the political pull he had.

It's a clone body, so as long as he gets on the holocommunicator fast he can still issue the order, I say he could do it inside of a minute. As for the politics, he still controlled the Seperatist/Trade Federation Army, and if he neutralised the republic army, which he supplied in the first place ironically, then he could still conquer the republic. After that it's just consolidating his power. Really all that would have changed is his anti-alien policies, which would have focused on specific species rather than a "if you're not human you're scum" agenda.

Firstly,from my viewpoint, the EU mostly sucks (except thrawn trilogy and x-wing novels). So any abilties and story from that other stuff, I disregard.

That said -

Palpatine gambled and lost, Anakin stands by and lets things play out. Palpatine pulls out his sabre to rescue the situation and gets cut down with ease by Windu. The dark force explosion blows Mace out of the window to an unknown fate. Sidious has left order 66 on a timed transmission, so the jedi slaughter goes as planned.

Learning of the supreme chancellor's demise, the republic turns on the remaining few jedi. Despite a defensive plea from Yoda, Obiwan and Organa. Palpatine's plotting is buried by selected power hungry senators. The few remaining Jedi are now exiled.

Still war weary and corrupt, the fragmented republic appoints Thrawn as commander of the republic starfleet, with Tarkin in overall command of military forces. Fleet production is stepped up and death star project is scrapped, as there is no need of planetary destruction and weakened galactic economics make the cost prohibitive. Star destroyers are the method of keeping order throughout the known systems.

Luke and Leia are being trained by Yoda, Obi wan and their father and proving to be the strongest jedi ever known. The underground jedi movement is starting to grow, dissatisfaction with a corrupt republic leads to a rebellion that drags the whole galaxy to war.

Mace Windu kills Darth Sidious..

1. Anakin pleads with Mace Windu to save Padme.
2. Mace Windu and the rest of the Jedi are unable to help Padme and she dies.
3. A very unsympathetic Jedi Council tell Anakin that Padme's death is the will of the Force.
4. Anakin falls to the darkside seeing how the Jedi are not concerned with his situation.
5. The Jedi Council sensing Anakin's fall to the darkside, limit his involvement in the Jedi Order.
6. Anakin seeing how he is being held back takes matters into his own hands and flees the Jedi Order.
7. Anakin goes into hiding and trains in the darkside.
8. Anakin assumes the mantle of Dark Lord.
9. Anakin returns to the Jedi Temple to get his revenge.
10. Prophecy of the One is fulfilled. Anakin wipes out the Jedi and probably dies in the process returning balance.

No matter which way it goes down, Anakin will fulfill his destiny and wipe out the Jedi and the Sith.

It is ridiculous to say that sidious would kill windu. It's clearly obvious in the MOVIES that anakin saved palpatine. Windu won the lightsaber duel, and stoped the lightning for a time. The best palpatine could do would unleash a new lightning, but i doubt it would be strong/fast enough to prevente the killing blow fomr windu.

Accept this Mace Windu won the fight. Anakin saved palpatine's life.

Well considering if you look at the Force Vision, Padme's death was kind of caused by Anakin's fall to the darkside, if Anakin hadn't had turned there is a good chance Padme would be alive.

Furthermore, even if she didn't survive the fact that Anakin would have been there for the birth of Luke and Leia would mean that while he would have 2 new bright spots in his life, his two children. Additionally, the idea that the Jedi wouldn't show sympathy for Anakin if Padme died giving birth is unlikely:
1. There was a Jedi Council member that was married aside from Anakin, he would understand Anakin's feelings.
2. None of the Council knew Anakin was married, if Padme died and then it came out he isn't likely to be exiled.
3. It was entirely possible Anakin was seeing Padme in pain from while she is giving birth and misinterpretted what he saw.

In any event, if Anakin had let Windu kill Palpatine, then if Mace got blown out the window, it is possible he would have survived or held himself in the air long enough for Anakin to pull him back in.
