So I've got a REALLY weird problem going on:
When I load up, the main menu only has the Skyrim logo. There's no "New Game," or "Continue," or "Exit," or smoke, or Bathdesta logo in the lefthand corner.
But here's the thing: I've gone through my entire mod list with the 50/50 method and all my mods work. I've done combinations, and they all work together. I was finally going to give up when I thought I'd try one last thing; I turned off the Bashed Patch. And what do you know, the menu worked.
Unfortunately, I have 280 plugins, so I need the Bashed Patch to get under the limit. When I take the mods out of the Bashed Patch and run them in different combos - the menu works just fine. I have never seen the Bashed Patch do something like this. I've tried re-bashing it and no errors occur during processing.
Why is the very the existence of the patch causing problems? How do I fix it?

Edit: I got the answer I needed on my Reddit post.
In case anyone else needs the answer (apparently this is becoming quite the wide-spread issue), here it is:
