ENT implied that there aren't any Earth colonies besides Terra Nova outside of the Sol system yet, so the Romulans aren't interested in gaining territory (I imagine that they want to eradicate Earth, the uniting force, the glue of the four species). And if there is no fight for territory, there is no need for ground battles.
But they might be interested in gaining Vulcan, Andorian or Tellarite space and even without a territorial conflict, a planet might have large strategic importance such that it is fortified with ground forces. In this case the Romulams might have used Remans as infantry and Spock's statement would still be correct.
