Your logic is right that usually two large players like Oracle and Google would resolve this through a cross-licensing deal. However, the way Oracle acts here indicates that they looked at the patents Google holds and don't feel there's any serious counterthreat. Google's patent portfolio is much weaker than many people believe.
