I can see that the required speed and torque can be obtained in delta mode but this is more complicated and appears to be less populer.
Can any one explain?

Welcome to the forum.
You are correct, you can not develop enough torque in star with a soft starter if the motor is designed to be connected in delta.
You must connect the motor in the configuration that it is designed to run in.
If you are replacing a star delta starter, then the motor is designed to run in delta, so you permanently connect it in delta and then apply the soft starter.
