Well all we can do about this now is examine what we know for sure... George Lucas has always been very up front with his use of color in the SW movies, saying about the sabers specifically that he chose red for the Sith to symbolise their agressive nature, and blue for the Jedi to symbolise their calmer more symbiotic nature. Some would say the only reason Luke had a green saber in ROTJ was so that it could be seen against the blue sky of the Jabba sail barge sets, and obviously, this would make sense, but with the duality introduced by the Living and Unifying Force, the blue and green might signify a Jedi's leaning between these two extremes of thought. There are behind the scenes featurettes that have Sam Jackson casually asking Lucas what colors the Jedi Sabers are, Lucas tells him blue and green, he asks if he could have purple, and Lucas thinks about it for a second and says something like, 'maybe for you we could have Purple'. This would indicate that the color of Mace's blade was just a random "what the heck why not" kind of decision, something not thought of as any kind of deeper symbolism at the time. But then again, if there was one suprise the prequels could pull off, it would be this. The happenchance of Mace's apparent saber color choice could very well have been staged. Think about how downplayed Sammuel's role was in TPM. When Jackson was interviewed, he said he wanted to be in the SW prequels and that he would just be happy to be a faceless stormtrooper, I never bought that for a minute. Sure, Lucas casts someone of the magnitude of Sammuel Jackson, calls him a "background" kind of character, and then makes Mace Windu the head of the Jedi Council, on par with or even superior to Yoda? Hello! This has OMFG! revelation written all over it.

It doesn't make sense, and if it doesn't make sense, you have to aqquit! LOOK AT THE SILLY LITTLE MONKEY!
