Ugly cross-staff beam

I have run into what may be an "ugly" issue, but I thought I'd post here first.

If you have a group of notes beamed across staves, you sometimes get an ugly beam slope.

\version "2.25.2"

\score {
  \new PianoStaff <<
    \new Staff = "upper" {
      \change Staff = "lower"
      e16 g
      \change Staff = "upper"
      e' e'
    \new Staff = "lower" { \clef bass s4 }

(Image attached.)  I can fix the beam with Beam.damping or Beam.positions but the problem is that the piece I'm engraving has this sort of figure throughout.  Adjusting every one of these will quickly become tedious.  Any thoughts on how to fix the beam slope for just the cross-staff beams?
