I agree. Writers usually need to give their villains traits and/or a background that the audience can use to better sympathize with the villain if the writer wants the villain to be a more rounded character. I generally view this as good practice because rarely is someone completely evil (or good) in reality.
"I would rather be a could-be if I cannot be an are,
Because a could-be is a maybe that is reaching for a star.
I would rather be a has-been than a might-have-been, by far,
For a might-have-been has never been, but a has was once an are".
-Milton Berle
