Does "central villain" mean "big bad" here?
"Into this situation Shakespeare introduced one of the most striking characters in the play: the central villain, Aaron the Moor."

No, it means 'central villain,' as distinct from the minor ones, such as Tamara and her sons, especially if you are about to write an essay on 'Titus Andronicus.' Using a term like 'big bad' will suggest that you are not taking your subject seriously, so there will be no reason for your tutor/teacher to take you seriously.
