Piett crashed the Executer which probably would have done the same job. The Rebel pilots who deactivated the ship's shields or crashed into the bridge, the strike team on Endor, ironically had Luke chosen to continue his Jedi training nothing would have changed. Had anything like that been raised at all?
If I'm reading your statement correctly, Palpatine's death was the result of several moving events. Vader killed Palpatine directly, and Luke talked him into turning. Thus, one could conclude that Luke was involved. If Palpatine was on the Death Star when it blew up, the Rebels would have been responsible for his death. Mara Jade blammed Luke because she was misslead by a vision. She didn't know the whole truth untill much later.
Nice question though.
