I find things that come solely under the fantasy umbrella have a tendency to be much more plot- than character-driven. There are character-driven fantasies but they are often categorised under a different genre as the primary with fantasy coming in second (such as romance or horror).
You have Star Wars (Which I label under fantasy)
Now there will be exceptions; there are to every rule. But looking over everything from JRR Tolkien, Terry Brooks, George RR Martin, RA Salvatore, George Lucas, Joe Abercrombie, Mark Lawrence, Michael Sullivan, Chuck Wendig, you can pretty much go down the row here and see Good vs. Evil as the big driving force. Yes, there are a thousand themes people put into these stories, most if not all by their own making, but you can widdle each one down to a Good vs. Evil on some kind of epic or grand world ending scale.
