Have a look see here...

Are your transaction log backups being done regularly? So you need to decrease the log backups interval? so there is less to recover at SQL Server Service startup?

Have you looked at the article Tony suggested?

Or considered his advice to reduce the time between log backups? I've seen Brent Ozar blog about taking a transaction log backup every minute.

This is standard behaviour.  At startup the server will check all the transaction logs to ensure that the DB is in a consistent state.  As the other posters have said, back up the logs more frequently to reduce the amount that have to be processed at startup.
