Maybe because I identify too much and the role than makes me uncomfortable?
I suppose so, but only you can answer that. Since I consider all of us equally capable of such "sinister" behavior - I don't feel uncomfortable playing such a role. I see it as a matter of upbringing and environment, and not a matter of inherent evil or similar human constructs.

That said, I play "myself" in those roles - as in how I would act under the same cirumstances and given the same persona. So, for an RPG - I play the assassin as I would behave as an assassin - not as an "evil" character. I can't do "evil" in games - because it conflicts too much with my own set of values.
