And the WC3 manual called Tyrande a night elven princess... The thing is, manuals and promotional materials... they're very unreliable lore sources.

And while I'm sure John Staats is knows what he's talking about, the fact that they considered the Horde the evil faction simply did not carry over to the game. The only Horde faction I would agree with you were shown to be evil since their introduction to the faction were the Forsaken and some of the blood elves. The former never stopped being evil, the latter were redeemed in the same expansion that introduced them to the faction.

Let's also not forget that whether you are playing Alliance, Horde or even a Forsaken, your primary goal is to protect the world your character lives in from evil. How could you not feel like a hero?
