Sorry I solved it! I noticed that image file was accidentally getting corrupted in the build and I suspect it somehow led to installer being bloated (image size was corrupted?).

 Hello. I'm wondering if anybody noticed that Burn engine embedded into bundle exe file inflates it to almost 300MB. My 3 MSI installers that I put in there are 5 times smaller in size (in total). I'm using WixStandardBootstrapperApplication and in <Chain> directive have 3 MSIs, and apart from them I only have a couple of small images, one for background, one for icon. Is it a known issue/bug? I tried to search but couldn't find anything. This creates a bit of a problem for us because such a big installer is going to take a lot of space in our Continuous Integration build system.
