Starfinder had this combined resistance, for a time, until compatibility with PF1 monsters (which used the DR and energy resistance format) forced the slide backwards to DR and energy resistance later on.
I wonder if you are kicking yourself over that decision now. I would ;P
Yes, and that's exactly my point. Starfinder is, pardon me saying, worse because of PF1 backward compatibility and while PF1 is pretty much over, SF is going to continue living alongside PF2 for the next couple of years.
It makes one wonder what great games you could design if you ditched the past completely. (Heresy, I know.)
