I cleaned out the local game files and started to reinstall the game, and all I got were ~150 MB. So all that is delivered by Steam is some version of the launcher which then updates itself twice. I then have to download the rest of the game (~12GB) in the launcher.

Of course this is exactly what I wanted to avoid because for me downloading a game from Steam is several times faster than any other platform I know.

Update: Reinstalling the game did not help, after 20 minutes of waiting I still only get "Waiting for editing server to start up and patching Foundry updates". CPU and network usage are stuck at 0-1%, so the game is not doing anything. Memory usage is 700.600 K and not moving either.
I'm trying to track down some additional info/help for you.
