Overestimate of selectivity. I guess it's mainly due to my one to many
table relationships. I've tried everything from concatenated join
columns and indexing it to creating all sorts of indexes and splitting
the (1) tables into multiple tables and upping the indexes to 1000 and
turning of nestloops/enabling geqo/ tweaking the threshold/effort and
much much more (as much as I was asked to/suggested to) but still no
luck.

In my case, the individual queries were fast. So, In then end, I made a
SRF and used the SRFs to join each other. This worked better.
