I think there's so much more to a back-end than people think. Many people just think of back-end as the server that gets requests and accesses some database to return data to the front, but in reality the back-end is SO deep, as you said, there's a whole bunch of routing, communication, authentication, validation, type checking, querying, updating etc that goes on behind the scenes. It's so easy to underestimate the functionality and workload that a back-end actually does.
