Attacking the boss before they can even get a word in?

No, I've never had my players do that to me, what are you talking about.

First. Also, I remember our half-orc barbarian doing the exact same thing. EVERY. FREAKING. TIME.

I try to steal the big bad's crown of evil or whatever before the fighters can even raise their swords. Unfortunately, that often leads to me becoming evil and killing all of them because of said crown.

We actually used that as a strategy in an encounter the other day. One of us yanked the crown off the insane ruler and went nuts, then our cleric promptly bashed him for all of his health.

Second campaign I ever played, we are fighting our way up the BBEG sorting list, four of them in total.

And what happens?
We attack before they even started to monologue.

It was actually annoying as I wanted to hear their stories. I'm more a of a role-player, I like the story side of things.

But you gotta let the Big Bad give their monologue. How else are you supposed to learn about their engaging backstory and underlying motivations?

Joke Prediction: Pinkie Pie starts coming up w/insulting names for NNM.
AJ:"I stick a hoof in her mouth to shut her up."
DM:"How close are you to her?"
AJ:" Assuming I've lived in the same town as her, right next to her"
Twilight:"Wait, so at every party, you're always right next to Pinkie and behind RD?"
AJ:"Don't question me."

'engaging backstory and underlying motivations'? I think you mean 'potential weaknesses'.

Same thing.

Applejack was clearly the brains of the group until Twilight came along
