Reminds me of the Nikto Dark Jedi Maw, in Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight. In the intro-film, where Qu Rahm is interrogated by Jerec and his cronies (including Maw) you see that he is cut clean in half by Qu Rahm, but later on he's the first of the Dark Jedi (if memory server me right) to be fought. You see then that his upper body is placed on some sort of repulsor-sled-thingie. Cut in half & cleardly survived to ordeal.

He got better.

Why didn't Sidious learn this ritual in order to restore Vader to his former more powerful self?
Well, why would he resurrect someone who just threw him to a nearly bottomless chasm?

It's not completely clear on Maul's fate, yet. That will be revealed in upcoming episodes of Clone Wars.

For those curious this is what happens apparently.

I also know that Darth Maul's coming back in the clone wars series. I read it once on the star wars website.

Neither were completely ruined by the destruction of their bodies, but it did mean that neither could achieve their full potential.

Maul is a natural being, and thus even being cloned would result in a being of comparable strength (given similar training or mind transfer).

Vader on the other hand is not natural, he was conceived via the force, and no cloned body would have the same potential. Therefore, Plaguis/Sidious plan of the perfect apprentice failed when Anakin was "destroyed". He was still powerful, just no longer as much as he could have been.

That's my take anyways
