Dondo comes to mind.  Had no redeeming qualities at all.  And I have a hard
time imagining anyone mourning him.  Perhaps his mother, mourning the child
he once was.

I would include Ezar Vorbarra.  Sacrificing human lives to obtain some
public good - questionable, but potentially valid.  Sacrificing them for a
mere private good?  Indefensible.

And, of course, Baron Ryoval.  Did anyone not benefit from his death?
Aside from his mind-damaged bioslaves, of course.
