The problem with his character (pretty sure this is the game I'm in) is that he's upset that he is interpreting not being able to AoO with a Doshko, not adding 1.5 STR mod to damage with 2h weapons, and Step Up requiring a Reaction as making "all 2h melee fighters useless" or at least. I tried to explain that Step Up is useful for Full Attacks and Step Up and Strike is good later on. Also that there are plenty of high damage 2h weapons that aren't unwieldy. But he insists that 2h weapons are pointless because "1d10 over 1d8 is a negligible difference" according to him.
Essentially it's an unwinnable thing. Because he's very used to the way Pathfinder works, used to the broad selection of feats, used to the action economy, etc that he feels Starfinder is unfairly making "2h melee pointless".
He also refused to acknowledge the fact that he had most of the kills in our first session (over 50% in fact) while I, a melee Solarion with a 1h Solar Weapon... got no kills and spent a lot of my time doing mediocre (relative to him) damage.
