Minor spoilers I guess

I've played through each of the base set scenarios except the 5 star one and played through the new 5 star scenario from the tiles collection.

That's like 20 hours of gameplay but I still have not yet seen any big monsters (e.g. Star Spawn, Dunwich Horror etc.)?

The enemies spawned are almost always humanoid (cultist, maniac, witch, cult leader). This seems kind of lame and unscary...anyone else find the same?

I've only played through the first scenario, but I've played it three times now and
Spoiler (click to reveal)
a Star Spawn has spawned on each one of this playthroughs. It usually comes right after or soon after you open the door to the room / space where the portal is.

I think it may depend on how many players you have for the scenario. When we played with 5 people we got the star spawn. When we played with 2 people we did not.

It is entirely random what you get, so it is not that strange. I have met a Star Spawn on the first mission with only 2 investigators.
If you play more they will show up.

When playing the first scenario with two investigators I always have a star spawn turn up. The only other large creature I have seen is the Dunwich Horror in the expansion scenario.

One of the base set scenarios will always have a Star Spawn.

No it isn't.

Without giving spoilers you are only likely to see the large monsters if you progress slowly or badly in a given scenario. Most have the capacity to spawn them but they are generally used as punishment. Only 'Shattered Bonds' guarantees an appearance by the Star Spawn (assuming you get far enough with the objective).
