Nagato's life is full of Pain which plays into his personality.
Sasuke also has valid reasoning behind his persona. At an age younger than Obito he witnessed his brother who was his idol kill his parents. Throughout the years to come Itachi would continuously mind fuck him pushing Sasuke to the edge. Sasuke then kills his brother only to find out that Itachi's simply a pawn within a much larger conspiracy. Sasuke to this day is still seeking answers so he can decide for himself what he wants to do.
Now let's look at Obito. Obito grew up within a privileged family surrounded by lots of friends & family. Obito was an arrogant child who would crumble under pressure the majority of the time he's faced with a problem. This holds true not only during his privileged childhood but should also hold true with his physiological brake down that's about to take place.
Now let's look at Kakashi who by comparison has had a much harder time when compared to Obito. Kakashi basically became an orphan after his father committed suicide. Instead of crumbling under pressure he persevered. Kakashi has to live with the guilt of Obito dieing in his place & killing Rin. Yet Kakashi was able to persevere & live on.
Obito's breakdown boils down to being unable to coop with reality. Instead of focusing on the person directly involved in Rins death what does Obito do? Obito kills his mentor because he apparently can't be everywhere at once & kills his entire family for no logical reason what so ever. Obito's so called justification for his actions is that he'll just hit the reset button so none of his actions matter. It's fucking retarded.
Really now how can you honestly sit here & defend this bullshit? Fucking apologist.
Obito's character has a half a hearbeat more depth than Kimmimaro (Kimmi's generally known but not the specifics, and not one person from his clan/family did he ever interact with, the closest thing to a 'Comrade' was Juugo whoms DNA was keeping him alive basically), who got 7% of the screen time. That should tell you something.
