He left the station in 2262. His death was in 2278. He didn't take 16 years to discover himself. My guess is his journey with Lyta ended in about 5 years (there was one short story written by Joe about G'Kar and Lyta on their travels). I believe G'Kar had already been on Centauri Prime for four years or so before the death scene in the books.

This scene was also at one point planned for the Babylon 5 feature film, according to the partial outline revealed in the Movie Scripts book.

The main story is the five years on the station, and that was told. That's the way Joe wanted to do it. The side stories involving Garibaldi/Bester, Lennier's fate, the occupation of Centauri Prime, etc. are different stories in the same Universe, but they weren't meant to be in the show or anything. Take the Centauri one for example - we can see in Objects at Rest that the Keeper is going to be given to David, and we saw in War Without End that Sheridan & Delenn came to Centauri Prime, likely because of David. The Drakh tells Londo about the fusion bombs around Centauri Prime, and in the flash-forward we see the fires caused by the bombs burning across the planet. The connections are there in the show, even if the details of these side-stories were elsewhere.
