In Skyrim playing the Dark Brotherhood is not exactly "evil" most of the time you are killing proper evil people. And the other part you are simply defending yourself and your family against betrayal.

Urrr, wot? Just off the top of my head, the Dark Brotherhood has you (secret for spoilers) kill those three people in the house when Astrid comes to recruit you (I guess you can kill just one, but has anyone ever done that? Doesn't everyone just kill all three to be sure?) How are those people evil?

Then they have you do multiple contracts where they just go "murder this dude in city so and so."
Then they have you kill the Gourmet.
Then they have you kill more schleps in random cities.
They they have you kill the Emperor.

Now, maybe my definition of evil is different than yours, but to me there's little good about that. Who exactly is so evil, in your mind, other than that old hag?

The Gourmet is a ORC, he likely makes stuff with human meat... <-- Even if not.. he's an ORC.
Then they have you kill more schleps in random cities. OK that is true Forgot that entirely
They they have you kill the Emperor. That dude signed the White-Gold Concordat at the end of the Great War ... he is not just evil, but a traitor to the Nord ways.

I am sure there were some reasons as to those random slobs, no kill in the quest-line was entirely absolutely totally evil. Or made me think and say, wait.. let's just try to get around this one non-violently.

I just wanted more depth. After Oblivion I had high hopes...

And yes, I played both lines to their respective ends. Thief quest line ended quite epicly, but not in the way I wanted it to end. That's a weird complaint I guess...

I never got why I couldn't join Mercer instead.
