Yes, of course, but it depends on what your DB is modeling.
Roll-back is important if aborting between queries would leave the
DB in an inconsistent state. Transactions are important if your
queries require proper serialization. You usually need these
features (by "need" I mean "can't live without") only for rather
complex databases. In simpler cases (as DBs used for web sites
usually are) you can easily (as you say) just write your software
