Could he heave preserved his life?
In the books? Yes, I think that until fairly late in the game, Robb could probably have negotiated a surrender that would have kept him alive and acknowledged as paramount lord of the North. Tywin is a fan of harsh gestures, but on tactical terms, not because he's personally vindictive, and in the long run leaving the Starks alive and in control of the North would have led to greater stability than something like the Red Wedding.
