Another question to ask yourself is “What is at stake?”

You have the outward battle, yes, but what  ELSE is at stake? What “moment” have you been building towards in your MC/the good guys?

An example from Star Wars might help. The external “Final Battle” from The Return of the Jedi, is when Luke vs. Darth Vader. But the “real” internal battle is whether Darth Vader will chose loyalty to his family OR to his emperor.

This is not my original idea. I watched an excellent YouTube video that goes into greater detail and uses the example above. Hope this helps.
