TBH , I think I still prefer the Jackal as an antagonist. Something about him being probably the least reprehensible person in the enitre game besides the journalist and the random refugees really struck me as interesting. But I do really liek vaas.
I would be okay with Vass dying halfway if not for the fact that we already saw the majority of his crazy perfomances in previews. Some were even missing (where he puts a gun in one of your friends hand and taunts them to pull the trigger). Overall his part/arc/story felt pretty rushed and overexposed cause the devs/publishers/pr&marketing guys knew that Vass is a charismatic fella and just threw 80%of his screentime in long before release.

That was from the original CGI trailer which was made during a much earlier time in development, there were quite a few things different between it and the final game, like Liza was called Nicki, there was and extra character who is not in the final game, etc, and there were only three of them total instead of six. The "pull the trigger" scene wasn't in the final game, because that scene would have originally been the escape scene it seems.
"So my lunch today involved both a noodle packet and a sauce packet....so yeah, things are going pretty well for me."
Here is a badass villain.... who in the end means diddly squat and is dealt with in a very weak way.
And personal opinion: Vaas's "insanity" monologue before he throws you off with the rock tied on your feet, trumps the whole presence of Bane in the DKR (since the two characters are practically the same thing)
