Concerning your example, there is definitely no analytic proof of the existence of rational curves on Fano manifolds. This is one of the dream of complex geometers... You can also consider this weaker statement: given a Fano manifold $X$, can you construct an entire curve (i.e. a non constant holomorphic image of the complex plane) in it by analytic methods? Even this is not known...
