Empathy for the Devil?

So I was just wondering from all you avid readers out there... how often do you empathize (or at least identify on some level) with the characters you read about?

Usually, this is not a problem for me. Give me a hero, I can understand how he feels about the problem at hand. A villain? I can understand why he might be upset with the world after what he's been through. But one of the last novels I read? Could not identify with the main character at all, and finished with a feeling of being cheated, somehow. I was just wondering if this happens to you a lot?
