Trolls like fighting, and they like gold even more. So when an evil wizard came to them and promised lots and lots of gold, they said they would fight for him right away. The wizard wanted to take over the Kingdom’s castle, and the trolls were going to help him get it.

But, in the 140-160 page story I have embedded on my hard drive would prove, Goblins, Trolls, Demons (Which have evolved in the story from evil Demons from the underworld to thier own civilized species), and other 'evilish' things I actually nearly always the good guys. It's the Elves, Dwarves, Dragons, and humanoids (excluding most Humans) that are the spanisih inquisistion of thier time. Several species on the defensive side are things like carnivorous worms, large cephalopods, beings of energy, and so forth. I even incorporated and tweaked real world things, like the trail of tears, the holocaust, and the spanish inquisistion into the story.
Back to the point: Orcs are portrayed oftenly as evil because thier first major appearence in literature or culture or whatever portrayed them as evil. It stuck.
Conflicts do not happen because good and evil like to fight.
Well, being an old fan of Dragonlance

Poor misunderstood Grendal, Beowulf was a big meanie right?
To be fair, I've heard more than a few writers, directors, and actor state the best villain doesn't know they're a villain.
They may be aware of the fact they commit villainous acts, but in their mind, anything they do is justified by a higher (even noble) purpose or goal they have.
TLC has clearly cast them as rational, somewhat barbarous, greedy beings. Certainly a pretty big character flaw for an entire race, but if anything, it makes them more pathetic than evil.
