Whether ground combat is passe depends on whether you need to control an area. If you need to control it, you need boots on the ground. That means ground combat..
You need boots on the ground if you want to control a population especially if you are worried that you might be labeled a war criminal. If just want to control an area and don't care about international laws you could inflict enough damage to either kill or force out a significant percentage of the population. You only have to look at America's western expansion to see how it would work.
