I mean, you could assume things on film are seen from a Jedi POV - that is, that things are actually happening really quickly (such as the duels), but we see it from a Force sensitive POV so it 'slows down,' if that makes any sense.
I actually believe that's the case for the Jedi vs. Sith fight scenes. Still, for this thread however, why Kenobi didn't use Force Speed is a plot hole or the laser doors would have sliced him.
BlackZero30x created this a-'Maize'-ing signature! =)
The POV fights throughout the EU are bothersome. It's always written to conform with that character's standards, so the overall consistency gets skewed. It's why the film fights are more funner; if they show it slow, it's slow. Tough.

Why did the Emperor keep his lightning on when Vader picked him up?
Why do all of the multi-person duels in the PT not end up in a landslide victory for the multi-party team (cause one person could easily just use TK to cause the "bad guy's" saber to falter, ever so slightly, causing the bad guy's head to get cut off).
Here's why: giving people magical powers and then writing a movie about them is going to create plotholes no matter how hard you try and fix it.
Qui-Gon would have shown a lot more care in raising/training Anakin. Obi-Wan just let him do whatever.
Also, Obi-Wan pretty much jogged his way over to Maul and Qui-Gon; if he'd picked up the pace a bit, he wouldn't have gotten stopped by the doors which would have indeed killed him since he didn't have the Force abilities needed to get through them.
