Most people believe the Daedra are inherently evil. It even says so in the game tips during loading screens. Azura is obviously the exception to the rule. The Daedra are "wild" because they love to interfere and meddle with the mortal races. They enjoy the fact of "luring" humans to the dark side, and taking them further away from the Aedra. They do it partly just to spite the Aedra for creating mortal races in the first place.
The Daedra overall are very fascinating.
It's interesting too learning about how the various races view their mortality. For example, the Mer races (Dunmer, Altmer, Bosmer), view mortality as shameful, a bad thing, because they believe they once were immortal and Gods themselves, and thus being mortal they have been separated from Godhood. The human and beast races look upon mortality as a blessing from the Gods, and they're very thankful for it. So you can see why a human God, Talos, is viewed with disgust from the Aldmeri Dominion of high elves. Because a lot of high elves view humans and beast races as just that, beasts, not worthy of anything.
I agree though, the world is very deep, and if you take the time to read the books, it's very rich and rewarding.
