I needed to create configuration form in Magento2 admin. After research, I found that forms had to be defined in xml (system.xml)

    <group id="general" translate="label" type="text" sortOrder="10" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="0" showInStore="0">
        <label>Foo Configuration</label>
        <field id="foo2" translate="label" type="text" sortOrder="11" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="0" showInStore="0">
            <label>Foo Email</label>
            <comment>Defines the foo email.</comment>
            <validate>required-entry validate-email</validate>

I found this solution very "clean"

Now I need to make form in frontend, and all examples I find are defining form in phtml files :

like Here

Is there a way to create frontend form in xml also? If yes, What is the best way? If No, Why this difference?
