They didn't have another choice. Had Goku haven't pressed the button, Zamasu would won.
And why is that a mistake?
GT wasn't that bad

He must feel awful. Being a God and no one respects him. Just sad.
And Zamasu thought he had it bad. Fuckin' edgy Kaios thinking about "Justice" and shit just because they got strong by chance.

Its not a mistake. He was already friends with Present Omni King at that point.

The mistake he made was bringing Future Omni-King to the present, he could have found someone else to be the Present Omni King's friend. More importantly, it would have avoided the Zen Exhibition Match from ever happening.

What else was he supposed to do? If there was ever a time to press the button, that was it.

There's no mistakes.
Only plot points.
Just wait...

As much as I hate Goku right now.

That he pushed the button and brougt Future Zeno with him might be the key to get rid of both.

None of these are "mistakes."

Pushing the button to get Zeno to stop Zamasu from tearing apart time and space was not a mistake, it was necessary. Him holding a tournament in which defeated universes are destroyed was not a foreseeable consequence.

Bringing Future Zeno back was not a mistake. It fulfilled a promise to Present Zeno. Them holding a tournament in which defeated universes are destroyed was not a foreseeable consequence.

The only possible mistake was asking the Zenos to hold a tournament. Beerus (who knows Zeno better than Goku) warned him not to.
