    I really hope your not stupid... Darth Maul killed Qui Gon Jin, therefore Obi Wan wanted revenge which means Obi Wan broke the Jedi Code...

    *you're

    And it isn't stupid.

    To answer the original question, regardless of what the objective was, the original duel between Maul and Obi-Wan just happened to turn out that way. Bear in mind that Maul bested a Jedi Master. Obi-Wan was only an apprentice, and Maul was a Sith Lord. Obi-Wan's only chance at escape may have been to attempt killing Maul (who we might assume was defeated by Obi-Wan only because he was worn down after his duel with Qui-Gon).

    Obi-Wan is not a vengeful character, and he never was. He even looked past the fact that Maul murdered the love of his life. I mean...he just doesn't have a hateful bone in his body. I think he killed (or rather attempted to kill) Maul only because he felt that no other option might ensure his survival

    Yes, in that moment Obi-Wan did seek vengeance, which whilst dangerous, did not break the Jedi Code. The Jedi are understanding, Yoda never punished Anakin for slaughtering the Tusken Raider village. Yoda remarks in TCW that he once was a brash and impulsive knight, like Anakin.
    Revenge is frowned upon by the Jedi Order, as it is one of many steps towards beginning your descent down the dark side, but the Jedi do not view the world in black and white. They understand exceptions must be made.

    It would be different if Obi-Wan for example travelled half the galaxy for three days hunting down Maul, in order to kill him.
