If the shields took more damage before health deteriorated, ground combat would be even more laughable. In that case, I wouldn't even deploy a secondary shield or even a healing station. Learn to use your NPCs' skills.
Even doing explore missions at elite level, the ground missions are rather easy to complete without much worry.
What class do you play? Train your engineering NPC on some shield healing and equip them with plenty of hyposprays and such,
Speaking for myself: I have no trouble with ground combat. I usually kill every enemy within a few seconds of combat because they drop that fast. However, their shielding systems are simply superior to ours. Most of the time the Personal Shield is not much of a defense. I have played without one on and had it make very little difference. It does not survive long enough to be much aid.
The new DOFF shields are some of the best I have ever seen. They actually give benefits BESIDES absorbing 2 shots from enemies. So those at least are more acceptable.
