And as @Togruta said, having Obi-Wan kill Maul is the easy route. I certainly don't think he deserves to kill Maul. I'd never believe that Obi-Wan would give a crap how Maul goes down, just so long as the guy is dead and no longer a threat to the galaxy. Considering the fact that Maul keeps surviving every attempt to destroy him, perhaps someone (Palpatine?) finally wizens to the fact that Anakin should be the one to do the deed. Its about time that Anakin fulfills his role as Chosen One, and starts slaying some Sith. I think Sidious will use Maul to draw Anakin away from anything that prevents him from becoming Sdious' next apprentice. In the end, just another test for Anakin.
