Got anything to back those two statements up? Maul has one line in the entire film, that's hard;y enough to allow him to be the 'most well liked sith of all time'.

I'm sorry, are you saying that the EU isn't canon? Because it is, actually.

And many of those tests were there because Sidious knew that Vader would suceed. For instance, when he sent one his Emperor's hands to kill him - He was no match for Vader - he just wanted to further stir his anger and hatred.

Where did I say that, exactly?

Not to mention coming up in the Clone Wars, Ventress is craving becoming a Sith. If Ventress was to kill Anakin then destory Dooku, Sidious' would have gladly taken her as his apprentice...
Ventress was nothing but a hack compared to Dooku and Anakin - she was designed merely to be used to test Anakin.

That's 19 years after all of the other events. By that time, Vader had served his purpose - destroying the Jedi and establishing the Empire.

More appeal to everyone, or just to you?

No, it wouldn't. It would have just been another pointless opportunity for the Maul fanboys to get themselves in a frenzy, over their stupidly pointless character.
