Basically all the Empires ships were doing what Vader's task force was doing. The Empire lost it's focus dealing with Hit-and-run tactics which left the Death Star II more vulnerable. Besides, why would anyone bother with a system that only had a primitive Forest moon orbiting a gas giant?
For a quick strike, it was all the Rebels needed. All the Capital ships needed to do was act as a screen for the few fighters that entered the deathstar.
The interesting part is, with the group that was to destroy the shield generator.. how would they have been able to leave once the death star was blow up? The M. Falcon would have had a hard time picking up all the rebel troops, and i doubt even Han could break an imperial blockade with the shuttle
