What I usually end up doing is I first decide what kind of adventure I want the protags to have (a quest, a heist, and a revenge mission are going to require different plotttings from the antagonist) and then I try to somehow put some motivation for the antagonist there and as soon as I have some kind of loose outline I usually give up and leave it for revisions.

That makes sense, and sounds like it might work just as well.

To the point that I plotted my last two books so I can avoid any large-scale battle on-screen. I don’t like reading them, I don’t like writing them

I haven’t written any yet, but I agree, they are hard. I like to read them if they are written with a huge focus on the characters taking part in the battle, and not the battle itself.
