If anything Starfleet Marines could be transported down to a planet where hostility/violence is high instead of sending down a lightly armed and unarmored away team that don't have extensive training and the proper equipment to survive such encounters where most other Starfleet personal would be injured/killed or captured after putting up little to moderate resistance against their aggressors.
Marines would be trained and equipped to deal with hostile individuals who have the intent of killing or capturing any Starfleet personal they encounter and be able to secure a beam-down landing zone so officers who have been sent to speak for the Federation can without being shot down each time by the enemy at every possible opportunity.
And that is my 2 cents.
