Wrong. That is meerly a type of villain. Putting them higher than other varieties is ignorantly focusing on the fact that they're "lol more than one thing, they must be well-written".
Conversly, it's often the villains who are utterly despicable in every way who make a better impact, rather than the "lol you can sympathize with me I'm not all bad" variety, as this this kind of villian that makes you get up out of your chair and yell at your TV-screen. The goal of a writer is to get you emotionally involved with his characters, and provoking an emotional reaction, namely anger and hate, is both hard and a hallmark of a good writer.
