They're definitely evil.

Interestingly enough, I normally never play evil characters either - and yet I felt it was a natural thing to join the DB in Oblivion.

But that's because I largely prefer to play stealthy types - and since the game was so open about how you go about developing your character or handle situations, it didn't feel so forced - like in a Bioware game where being evil is telegraphed by colors and obvious dialogue choices.

The DB is so excessively evil - that you can't really take it seriously. At least I couldn't - and the whole quest-line struck me as mostly tongue-in-cheek stuff, but done so well it didn't matter.
