IGN posted an interview with The Clone Wars voice actor Sam Witwer covering Darth Maul and it had some interesting answers from Sam.

SW: That’s the thing, the ultimate apprentice — the one that he’s really looking for — is Luke Skywalker, and ironically enough, that’s the one that does him in by not becoming his apprentice. But that’s the whole thing. The Emperor is constantly looking for the replacement. And Darth Maul perhaps invents in the Emperor’s mind this idea that you can recycle these guys, that if you think they’re killed, maybe they’re not. Maybe there’s something more you can do with them. He certainly recycles Anakin when he’s been burned down, and it’s very possible that this whole thing with Darth Maul puts those ideas in his head. It’s like, “Oh, perhaps I underestimated these people. Maybe you can use them for something even after they’ve been disfigured.”
