Network Firewall Configuration

Network firewall configuration needs a decent amount of work or maybe I just have a fundamental misunderstanding. Not being able to use IP objects as destinations adds needless work to rule creation. Network Service Objects can only have one port number and either TCP or UDP so I have services/applications that need 4-8 different rules just to be allowed through. Trying to be secure using network firewall policies takes a ridiculous amount of work for something that even a PFsense instance does simpler/better.

Am I missing something key here? Or did we purchase the wrong product if we wanted logical firewall configuration?
