Prettier does whatever you ask it to do. If you hate the result, change the prettier configuration to your liking. Tools like prettier suppose to help with consistent formatting of the source code (especially useful when working on codebase with multiple devs). It works especially great when combined with some linting tool (ESLint).

I could help with configuration if you'd be able to publish your prettier/eslint config (on gist maybe?)
edit: here's my Webpack 5 boilerplate with ESLint/prettier config, maybe it'll help:
