Angels are programmed - they can only do good. They're like a team that won an important game, but there wasn't an opposing team in the field...
If people possessed no free will, what delight would the Creator have? If they didn't have "opposition" to doing good - in other words, an evil inclination - what reward would they deserve? They'd be just like the boxer who calls himself a champion, but there was no opponent in the ring.
Here's another example: a person chosen from among a number of candidates feels satisfaction and delight; but if he is chosen because there is no alternative, he feels no delight. On an infinitely different level, if Hashem's goodness were revealed to all, obviously everyone would choose Him, and He would have no satisfaction and delight. The Creator wants people to choose him precisely when He is concealed. That is what gives Him true satisfaction. To do so, we must overcome a huge evil inclination. When we do, we go - as Rabbi Shalom Arush shows us - Higher than the Angels.
