Isn't this like feeding rabbits to a lion? Corvettes cut through fighters so quickly that it doesn't even slow them down (on higher difficulties at least - on "easy" fighters may have more of a chance).

Actually Corellian Corvettes also made prominent appearances in Ep. VI, and very briefly at the end of Ep. V as well.
And I think I saw Tartans in Ep. III - a group of four of them set a ways off from the Venators at the beginning of the movie - same aspect and formation, but it could have been a predecessor ship of some type.
(Oh, and I never thought Acclamator frigates or SPMA-T artillery walkers appeared in a movie until I watched Ep. II again.)
