The case n=2 is a degenerate polygon (two sides connecting two vertices). The two possibilities are when the edges cross and do not cross. Polygons start at n=3 with a triangle.

The sequence A132102 enumerates the case that edges are allowed between exits on the same side. This sequence can be enumerated in a similar manner using inclusion-exclusion on the number of sides that have their two exits connected. - Andrew Howroyd, Jan 26 2020
