Is there a way to tell EGit that I'd like to edit the commit message
before a merge completes?

In the package or project explorer click "Team > Merge..." and select the option "No commit". This is the EGit equivalent of "git merge --no-commit" [1]. Then commit using the Staging View as usual.

Also see [2].

Yup, exactly that. Thanks. Until now I always used the History view to
merge.
