My favorite antagonists in novels and stories are those who have their own good reasons for doing what they do other than just being a monster inside, with justifications that are consistent with their core beliefs, and not just for story convenience.

Mine too. It makes the conflict more convincing. Similarly, I like it in romances when the characters have genuine differences, not "misunderstandings" that can be handwaved away. I want to see them actually work through problems together.

Over in the Aether Dancer project, someone pitched a villain who is honorable, just doesn't mind using violence in pursuit of his goals. I'll probably pimp him when the voting starts on Monday. I really want to see this guy in action.
