The lack of this kind of variety is why I've largely checked out of fantasy and started taking more interest in history tbh. It's not that great stories haven't been told under more conventional action-adventure frameworks, it's that they all feel the *same* after a while and I'd rather go to a much richer, diverse source: real life.
On that note, do yourselves a favor and read Nnedi Okorafor's Binti.
