Watch Mace Windu/Samuel L. Jackson’s purple lightsaber scene.

When the shooting of big war scene in the movie started, Jackson wanted to be noticeable so he asked George if he could have a purple light saber. The director told the Avenger actor that lightsaber are only two different colors, blue and green. But when the war scene finally came, and Jackson came for the shooting, he was presented with purple lightsaber. So there you have it, Mace Windy has a purple lightsaber just because Samuel L. Jackson wanted purple lightsaber.
Later on the theory of ‘A jedi master who’s equipped with light and dark side abilities wields the purple lightsaber’ came up too.
