I think I have the tendency to play the opposition as very reasonable people. In your opinion, does that take away from your RPG experience?
My most recent gaming group is the opposite.
We've managed to make friends with most bandits, kobolds (including the explicitly evil shaman), mites, some fae, lizard folk, swamp sorcerors, giant turtles, carnivorous mushrooms, some tatzlwyrm, a hill giant, one spriggan, enraged giant owl bears, maybe centaurs, an elasmosaur, and an eel.
We did not manage to make friends with spiders, a magically cursed bear, cultists , trolls, zombies, wyverns, or soul eaters.
