"Required" Custom Fields insists on being Required when Deal is Won. Why?!

I've "grown up" in running my business with Pipedrive over the last 5 years, and the thought of using a different CRM is like changing where I get my coffee every day.

But there are so many frustrations which seem to make no sense? What am I doing wrong here...

Why is it that I can't make a Custom Field as 'Required' whenever a Deal is within 2 of the 15 stages in one particular Pipeline, and Required also when the Deal is Lost? Why is it that the 'Marking deal as won' selection must be checked too?

The particular Custom Field I am adding is only relevant to those particular stages, and when the Deal is Lost!

Help me solve this... or at least please tell me I'm not crazy that this is a logical scenario.
