can I bypass the Start Button, and just start a workflow

When you manually start a workflow, it loads the flowchart diagram and has a button for you to press "Start or Cancel" to Initiate the Workflow. Then I get the start form where I populate my start values and then actually start the workflow.  As a user who is initiating the workflow, pressing that start button seems rhetorical and just an extra step that is inconvenience and confusing to people.

 

I understand that even OTB workflows have that initial "start button" when starting workflows manually, but Nintex is way cooler than OTB SharePoint. Is there a way to start the workflow without manually pressing "start" after just having clicked the workflow from the Item's Edit Menu?
