Not a MASSIVE difference all things considered, but hey.
That's how it works in Solasta and tabletop**, so hopefully that's how such a prompt would be implemented in BG3.

**Technically the trigger is "when you're hit by an attack," but most DMs in my experience call out the to-hit roll, e.g., asking "Does a 21 hit?", so the players always knows whether Shield would prevent said attack.
