The reason you would want a pause AND a timer is so you could play against yourself without being ranked against others. In other words... you would be able to see improvements in times that would be obscured when ranked and categorized (as slow, super slow, etc.)
Stan is absolutely correct, though. If there is no timer, there is no need to pause.
