Engineering is all about trade-offs. Performance vs Memory vs Processor Cycles vs Power Dissipation vs Cost vs Size vs .......
Yes, of course. My light dimmer works as desired. I can swap processor time for memory use by using some kind of look up table as you suggest, but it won't make any difference to anything; I'll still be using the same processor, it will still do what I wanted it to do, it will still have unused memory and unused processor time. No amount of optimisation will change this or free up resources for another task as I don't have another task for it to do.
