    So how important are macros if...

    If I hit my protein target of say 1.5g per kg, does it particularly matter what my carbs and fats are? Assuming that I hit my calorie target on a cut or bulk?

    You should also aim to get adequate dietary fat as well as a healthy dose of micros. Beyond that and calories it pays not to be too anal about it.
    Somehow still managing to avoid getting 'too big'

    Not really

    Different people have a different tolerance of carb intake. Some find it gives them energy to workout better, others find it makes them sluggish. You have to experiment. There is no one-size-fits-all for this (and it's not as important as calorie control + adequate protein and essential fats)
