I even ran the Modify ePub plugin (great plugin, BTW!) and selected the Adobe Modification options (the bottom 2). That shaved about 0.1 MB off the file size but they remain the largest files in my library.
I'm curious- what causes these files to be so large? Based on the page count and relative lack of images, I'd expect them to be somewhere in the 300 KB range.
Probably Lousy (or word cruft) coding. Sigil CV should make that visible.
A million @fonts and other useless garbage that can be removed 500K is a big EPUB when few images are included.
