Pathfinder 2E seems to be doing a lot of things right in rectifying some of the old notions about medieval weapons and armor, but it still gets a lot wrong. Was there an attempt to incorporate some of the newly rediscovered knowledge out there put forward by HEMA and prominent YouTubers on the subject? Did you guys want to do more and were limited by necessity of game mechanics?
For instance I really appreciate how bastard swords and hand crossbows don't seem to require a special proficiency anymore, but longswords are still one handed weapons and padded armor is still bad and studded leather armor is still a thing even though it never was.
One of my favorites, nevermind he's still primarily referncing D&D: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrVc1v90b7o
