Should my DX 18-200 ED VR II be this soft?

at 18mm f3.5, probably focused at infinity.  Of course, the trees in front are soft because of the  small DOF.


You cannot judge this lens at 18mm and 200mm, specially at f3.5-5.6.  You will simply get a mediocre image. I don't think you have a defective copy. Do a search at the DX SLR Forums and you will see quite a few awesome images from this lens. I used to have one and I was happy with it as a travel lens.
