Capital punishment is for crimes you really don't want committed- it's a strong disincentive.

Of course when you turn around, the spared villain reaches for the gun but then you kick him into a pit of lava and quip something pithy.
I guess that would make a great storyline for a 80s action movie, but I really hope goblins doesn't do something so cliched, inane, and morally senseless.
