Hi LisaK, welcome to MySwissAlps! I think you did a good job figuring out which passes/pass combinations make most sense for your itinerary. Regional passes may seem more expensive at first glance, but they generally do offer better mountain transportation coverage than nation-wide passes. You'll see the differences when studying the validity information at
On the other hand, the advantage of a Swiss Travel Pass (Flex) would be that you get to travel throughout the country during your entire stay, meaning you won't be limited to specific areas in case weather is bad over there. That flexibility could be a reason to pick either the 15 day Swiss Travel Pass Flex, or even a 15 day + 4 day regular Swiss Travel Pass (www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass). Whether the latter option is worth the purchase costs, would depend on your travel plans for the days that would otherwise not be covered by the 15 day Swiss Travel Pass Flex. And the 15 + 4 day division may not be convenient, looking at your days spent in France in between the Swiss portions of your stay.
You may be interested to read about the options we've listed for a longer stay at www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass/details (under "Alternatives if you stay longer than 15 days"). I'm afraid Rockoyster is right though: if you want to be sure, then there's no other way than calculating each and every detail of your itinerary.
